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

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

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.

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.
