Leoville Poyferre

Der Ursprung des Chateaus geht zurück ins 17. Jahrhundert, wo Leoville der größte Besitz im Medoc war, der über die Zeit und mit den Generationen in kleinere Besitztümer zerfiel.

Seit 1840 gibt es Chateau Leoville Poyferre, das seit 1979 von Didier Cuvelier geleitet wird.

80 Hektar Weinberge sind zu 61% mit Cabernet Sauvignon, zu 27% mit Merlot, zu 8% mit Petit Verdot und zu 4% mit Cabernet Franc bestockt.

- DECANTER Jane Anson: "There are certain estates across Bordeaux that come with an unshakeable personality, whatever the vintage.
Léoville Poyferré is undoubtedly one of them, and it is more than happy to play up its non-conformist image.
It chose Michel Rolland as consultant in the mid-1980s (his second consultancy gig in the Médoc after the CVBG properties I believe), has always harvested on the later end of the scale and with lower yields than you normally find in the Médoc; usually 35hl/h compared to the usual 45hl/h.
It also blends at the end of ageing, rather than the beginning, and generally includes an unusually high proportion of Merlot compared to its neighbours, while also ensuring that malolactic fermentation takes place in new oak barrels. With all of this, you can expect a more voluptuous take on the St-Julien appellation at Poyferré. This is a wine that is not afraid to proclaim its pleasure in finding itself in the appellation, but nor is it constrained by its classification."
