    Score: 90-92

    From the Cuvelier family, proprietors of Léoville Poyferré, this is an incredibly delicious 2010. Deeply coloured with a lush palate of raspberries and blackberries, it subtly reveals its powerful core by gently unfolding its concentrated, ripe and velvety tannins. Polished and smooth.

    Score: 90-91

    Tasted at the chateau, the Moulin Riche is a blend of 59% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 11% Petit Verdot and is showing a lot of oak on the nose with blackberry, a touch of fruitcake, graphite and tar. A hint of mocha emerges with time. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins, very supple and rounded but counterbalanced with good acidity, leading to a silky smooth finish polished by judicious creamy oak. Very in keeping with Didier Cuvelier's style. Very fine.Drink 2012-

    Robert Parker, February 2013,
    Score: 87

    This blend of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot and 11% Petit Verdot, with Michel Rolland as the consultant, displays a deep ruby/purple color and possesses straightforward notes of black and red currants intermixed with cedar wood, roasted herbs and underbrush. It is a medium-bodied, silky-textured wine to drink over the next 10-15 years. In a sense, this used to be the second wine of Leoville Poyferre, but like Clos de Marquis and La Croix de Beaucaillou, it is now a separate wine from a completely distinct vineyard owned by Leoville Poyferre.Drink: 2013-2028

    Made by the Léoville Poyferré team, from separate plots to the west near Ch Talbot. Great balance and punch. Richness. Real length, excitement. Around €15. Could be a good buy. Just a little short on the end but very classic. GV. Drink 2016-2023

    Score: 90-93

    Juicy and vivid, with lots of raspberry, cassis and blackberry fruit woven with a perfumy black tea note. There's plenty of grip on the back end, but this is lush and has melded nicely already. J.M.

Producer

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

St Julien

St Julien is like the middle child of the Médoc - not as assertive as Pauillac or as coquettish as Margaux. It lies firmly between the two more outspoken communes and as a result produces a blend of them both. St Julien's wines have often been sought out by aficionados for their balance and consistency, particularly in the UK. Yet due to its middle child nature, it can occasionally be overlooked globally and as a result underrated by those markets outside the UK. Despite the fact that it has no first growths, it has several second growths including Léoville Las Cases, Léoville Barton, Léoville Poyferré and Ducru Beaucaillou as well as the celebrated châteaux such as Talbot and Beychevelle.
