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

This is rocking> Apon opening this is just a poof of something lactic followed by a decidely ferny green herb note with hints of perfumey soap and light cedar notes to the rich, fresh red fruits. This is lighter and much more elegant than either the Troplong or Figeac with fresh red fruits in the mouth and wonderfully ripe tannins. Medium bodied with solid, vibrant acidity, this could easily be underwhelming in a crowd but it is exactly that subtle complexity that warrants and rewards attention. A great Bordeaux, really quintessential and at peak with a long future ahead.

Medium ruby-red. Extravagant aromas of currant, loam, leather and graphite; like the 1990 in its roasted character. Then sweet and dense but with surprising aromatic lift in the mouth, not to mention considerable power. Liqueur-like black fruit, lico... Stephen Tanzer's IWC.

A chewy wine, with impressively rich aromas and flavors of ripe plum, tobacco, cedar and earth aromas and flavors and attractive, velvety tannins. Drink after 1998. 18,500 cases made. -JS Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1990 Leoville-Poyferre 750ml
