3 Cases of Château Léoville Poyferré Dp 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

01 | FRANCE | Bordeaux

Chateau Leoville Poyferre:
In the reign of Louis XIII, in 1638, a certain Jean de Moytié, Counsellor of the Bordeaux parliament and a noble bourgeois of the town, owned a beautifully sloped gravelly vineyard near the River. This place, as was the tradition, was named after its owner and thus became the “Mont-Moytié.” Historically, the production of Mont-Moytié was among the first M&eac... Read more
In the reign of Louis XIII, in 1638, a certain Jean de Moytié, Counsellor of the Bordeaux parliament and a noble bourgeois of the town, owned a beautifully sloped gravelly vineyard near the River. This place, as was the tradition, was named after its owner and thus became the “Mont-Moytié.” Historically, the production of Mont-Moytié was among the first Médoc wines, along with the “Château de Margaux”, the “Tour de Saint-Lambert” or the “Château de La Fitte” in Pauillac and the “Château de Calon”, in Saint-Estèphe, which were all established before the period of civil war known as La Fronde (1648-1653.) These were the first estates to appear in the Médoc parishes, which were later to become commune appellations. Read less

Plummy, raisiny nose, surprisingly youthful for it's age, fruitcake flavours. Now mature, ideal for simple roasts. Available to purchase in the UK via M&S £11.99

Amazing, classic Bordeaux. I probably drank this one too early, but it was worth it. Superb.

Very enjoyable. Lots of unintegrated fruit. Dark and meaty but it will improve. Good length but the mouth is lacking something. Not really a wine to my taste although I can accept that it is a good wine.

Smoky and rich with lots of spice and berries. Medium- to full-bodied, with very good tannins with soft and silky texture and a medium finish. Not as impressive in bottle as barrel, but outstanding... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2001 Leoville-Poyferre 750ml

Like many of the great wines of the world, this is a rare wine, and only available in small quantities.

Gorgeous wine. At this stage in its development it is showing a flashy and flamboyant bouquet of black currant, ripe blackberries, espresso, baking spices like cinnamon and coriander and touches of leather. This wine enters the palate with gusto, big black cherries and cassis with a layered texture that showcases the fruit and is framed well by secondary and tertiary flavors of mocha and roasted coffee. Firm tannins and a prominent, but not overwhelming acidity ensure that this bad boy will lay down and continue to improve for 5-6 years and drink well another half decade after that. Long, savory finish that begs for another taste. This wine is not shy and it transcends the vintage with fierce character and personality. This is one to stockpile for short-medium term drinking.

This is very floral and perfumed with lots of violets, roses and berries. Full-bodied, with ultrafine tannins and a racy finish. Superfresh and long. Focused and clean. Best after 2010. -JS Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2001 Leoville-Las Cases 750ml

Jean-Hubert Delon thinks the 2001 Leoville Las Cases could turn out to be as good as his 2000. Im not sure I agree, but it may come close. A blend of 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19.5% Merlot, and the rest ... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2001 Leoville-Las Cases 750ml
