Chateau Leoville Poyferrest. Julien France 1999

Winemaker's Notes:

Berry Bros & Rudd review: Ch. Léoville Poyferré was always the perennially underestimated property of the three Léovilles, so we are delighted to see that it is now finally getting the credit it deserves. Quality has soared since Didier Cuvelier took control in the 1970s and in the last 20 years Didier, with the assistance of the renowned Michel Rolland, has turned this into one of St Juliens finest estates.

These were the first estates to appear in the Médoc parishes, which were later to become commune appellations. Read less

A top-flight effort, Leoville-Poyferre's 1999 exhibits a dense black/purple color as well as super-rich black cherry and cassis fruit intermixed with minerals, toast, and vanillin.
