Château Léoville Poyferré Red Bordeaux Blend St. Julien 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Berry Bros & Rudd review: Didier Cuvelier has made an absolutely brilliant wine at Léoville Poyferré this year. The voluminous fruit of the vintage really complements Poyferrés style. This is all black cherries and raspberries with hints of cedar, but at an intensity never seen before in this wine. Like so many of the top châteaux in 2005 this starts in quite a restrained manner but then grows and grows until the flavours seem to explode in your mouth. And as for the finish, well, that just goes on and on. The breed and elegance here is amazing.

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 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

Wine Advocate ReviewRated 93Although I still prefer the 2003, the 2005 Leoville Poyferre is a gorgeously opulent, approachable wine that is far less massive and austere than its two siblings. The most seductive, approachable, and charming of the three Leovilles, it exhibits a dense purple color as well as a sweet bouquet of mocha, black chocolate, creme de cassis, licorice, and toasty oak. Full-bodied with gorgeous upfront fruit in addition to impressive levels of melted, well-integrated tannin, it should be at its finest between 2015-2035.

Pavillon de Poyferre St Julien 2005 750ml Bright red fruit and silky tannins mark this excellent effort from Leoville Poyferre. Medium to full bodied, with round fruit and terrific balance.

A superb value for a highly rated 2005 Bordeaux from a renowned Chateau.

Far and away one of the most stunning wines of the tasting. While the rest of St-Julien is heavily closed and structured, this wine is showing amazing approachability. Sweet blackberry and blueberry aromas are joined by a nice floral component, and u... Mike Supple. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2005 Leoville-Poyferre 1500ml
