    Cuvée presentation

    This cuvée is matured for nine months in old barrels which have held two wines. It pairs very well with red meat dishes, lamb and duck. The nose reveals itself with great delicacy and blackcurrant and blackberry aromas. On the palate, the wine is also very fruity and well-balanced, with fleshy, velvety tannins.

    Information about domain Château Léoville Poyferré

    Léoville Poyferré's vines were originally part of the same vineyard as Léoville Las Cases and Léoville Barton. The property was created by a member of the Bordeaux parliament, Jean de Moytié, in 1638. The wine was already well-known, appreciated and commanding high prices in the 18th century, due to work of the owner from 1740, Blaise-Alexandre de Gasq, the Seigneur of Léoville. Four of his descendants owned the property at the time of the French Revolution. Four of his descendants owned the property at the time of the French Revolution. One of them, the Marquis de Las Cases, who owned one quarter of the land, fled abroad. The other three managed to obtain a partial confiscation of the property, consisting specifically of this quarter, from the Revolutionary Government. This plot would later become Léoville Barton. When the remaining plots were divided up, in 1840, Jeanne de Poyferré, the Marquis's granddaughter, inherited the current property, which took the name Château de Léoville Poyferré. The classification of the Médoc's wines took place a few years later in 1855. As the original property had been divided into three separate châteaux, they were all granted the rank of second growth (Deuxième Grand Cru Classé). Sold several times, Léoville Poyferré fell to a family from the north in 1920, today represented by Didier Cuvelier. As a remnant of this turbulent history, the château itself and the main courtyard are still shared between the owners of Léoville Poyferré and Léoville Las Cases. Under the management of Didier Cuvelier and the oenologist Michel Rolland, Château Léoville Poyferré has the technical and human potential to rival its cousin. The modernisation of the winery, the production of a second wine, Moulin Riche, and the use of a substantial proportion of new wood (80%) to age the wines, have all contributed to the creation of a complex nectar, with incredible depth.
