Jane Anson - Decanter

A gorgeous wine; mouthwatering, clear black fruits but with feathery touches of dried sage and chargrilled oak. The embers are still burning and the whole thing is just gearing up to its drinking window. Still fairly closed, this is a long-ageing vintage that is just starting to soften at 13 years old. I love how the tannins are so effortlessly soft and elongated, while still making their presence felt. It dances across the palate and, like the 2011 vintage, feels very much a reflection of its appellation.

Roger Voss - Wine Enthusiast

Hugely concentrated and packed with tannins, this wine shows considerable amounts of dark, extracted fruit. It wins out on impressive power, driving the fruit through the tannins, giving great richness.

Wine Spectator

Dark ruby red in color, with aromas of currant, blackberry, toasty oak and light cappuccino. Full-bodied, with ultrafine tannins and a beautiful, caressing aftertaste. Touches every part of the palate. Outstanding, but slightly disappointing after such a great showing from barrel. Best after 2009. 18,915 cases made.

Winemakers Note

Léoville Poyferré, a timeless style "What is essential is invisible to the eye" Since 1920, the Cuvelier Family has drawn inspiration from Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's profound words while meticulously shaping the distinctive style of Chateau Léoville Poyferré. Their journey has been characterized by care, contemplation, and an unwavering passion, all infused with a free-spirited ethos unbound by convention. These 'wine adventurers,' hailing from northern France, have always cast their gaze toward the horizon, steadfastly pursuing their mission: the perpetual enhancement of the wine and the revelation of the unique terroir, this hidden gem of the Médoc. As the fourth generation at the helm of this 2nd Grand Cru Classé in 1855 from Saint-Julien, Sara Lecompte Cuvelier preserves what is the real strengths of Léoville Poyferré that may not necessarily be seen at first glance: a secular know-how paired with the complexity of the terroirs.
