  • Goedhuis, April 2009, Score: 90-92

    A lovely Poyferré that tastes delicious as ever. In its trademark style, it is poised, super velvety and offers a sweet core of fruit. In addition to its charm, its impressive structure has made this wine built to last.

  • Neal Martin, February 2018, Score: 94

    The 2008 Léoville-Poyferré has a well-defined, quite precise and energetic bouquet with blackberry, raspberry and pencil lead aromas. This is very focused and engaging. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, graphite and pencil box aromas, harmonious in the mouth with a long and refined finish. What a fabulous Saint Julien from Didier Cuvelier, one that satiates the senses (and then some). (Tasted at BI Wine Spirit’s annual 10-Year On tasting.) 2018-2040

  • Robert Parker, May 2011, Score: 94

    One of the finest over-achieving efforts in this vintage as well as a “best buy” for a top-flight St.-Julien, this 2008 is an irresistible success. It reveals an opaque ruby/purple color, lots of unctuosity and a boatload of sweet cassis and black cherry fruit intertwined with notions of licorice, smoke and oak. Full-bodied, remarkably concentrated and stunningly pure and textured, this sensational wine is already drinking well, and will be even better with 2-3 years of cellaring. It should last for 20-25 years. Bravo! Drink: 2013 - 2028

  • Robert Parker, April 2009, Score: 92-94

    This powerful, dense, full-bodied 2008 is still backward and unevolved, but it possesses a dense purple color as well as sweet aromas of creme de cassis, vanillin, crushed rocks, and flowers. With high but ripe tannin and a long finish, this wine will benefit from 5-8 years of cellaring, and should keep for three decades thereafter. Drink: 2014 - 2044

  • Wine Spectator, April 2009, Score: 90-93

    There's beautiful purity of fruit in this young wine, with blackberry and raspberry on the nose and hints of toasty oak. Full-bodied, with a solid core of fruit and silky tannins. Turns fresh and lively, with sweet fruit on the finish.

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.Read less

Region

Médoc

The Médoc takes its name from the Latin phrase ‘medio aquae' (between the waters)- referring to the Gironde estuary and the Atlantic Ocean. It is a long, narrow vineyard area that stretches north-west from the city of Bordeaux along the left bank of the Gironde estuary. The water masses that surround the Médoc act as a heat-regulator and provide an ideal microclimate for viticulture. The well-draining gravel soil accentuates the near perfect growing conditions for the main grape varieties Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. The Médoc is the most famous red wine making region in Bordeaux and possibly the world.
