    Didier Cuvelier is making great wines at Poyferre, which is now, one of the outstanding St Juliens.His 2001 is brilliant with very high quality fruit and excellent balance. This joins the other twoLeovilles in being amongst our favourite wines of the vintage.

    The 2001 Léoville Poyferré, which I had not tasted for a decade, is very harmonious on the nose and features slightly darker fruit than the 2000, offering blackberry, cedar, fresh tobacco and smoke aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with rounded, lithe tannins, fresher than the 2000 and more backward. It has a disarming velvety texture and turns spicy toward the finish. Hints of clove and bay leaf linger on the aftertaste. Excellent.

    Sweet notions of plums, black currants, caramel, and spicy oak are provocative and alluring. Subtle but substantial, layered, and textured, with medium body as well as sexy, up-front flavors, low acidity, and ripe tannin, this beauty is among the most evolved and flamboyant of the appellation. Nevertheless, it should age well. Anticipated maturity: now-2016.

    Very, very deep crimson. Ink and some integrity on the nose (though still very raw). Should age well. Obviously a good selection. Dramatic wine. Drink 2008-2015

Château Léoville Poyferré

Similar to Pichon Longueville, the three Léovilles (Las Cases, Barton and Poyferré) were originallypart of the same estate - in fact, the largest in Bordeaux at the time of the revolution. In the early 1800s, the estate was divided into three distinct properties. Though it bears the same forename of its famous siblings, Poyferré is least known. Fortunately, this is changing. Through modernisation, exceptional vineyard management and meticulous winemaking, it is emerging as a star in its own right. Leoville Poyferre also produces the excellent Ch Moulin Riche.

Region

Haut-Médoc

The Haut-Médoc is an appellation within the Médoc that stretches along the left bank of the Gironde from Blanquefort in the south to the north of Bordeaux. The region encompasses the more famous communes of St-Estèphe, Pauillac, St-Julien and Margaux. Following the 1855 classification many of its most famous estates were classified and scored as first, second, third, fourth or fifth growths. This was based on their social and commercial positions at the time. Most of these classed growths use the village appellation name, such as Pauillac. However five of these classed growths fell outside a village appellation so take the name Haut-Médoc. Many of the vineyards which are classified as Haut-Médoc may actually also be referred to as Cru Bourgeois wines. These wines have lower permitted yields and so offer great value for money.
