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.

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

Pretty good effort for a spotty vintage.

Well done. Aromas of black truffles and ripe fruit introducing a full-bodied wine with lots of fruit and velvety tannins. A mouthful. Amazing for the vintage... Wine Spectator.

The dark ruby-colored medium-bodied 1998 offers aromas of underbrush black currants cherries minerals and vanillin. While sweet rich and stylish it lacks the depth necessary to merit an outstanding score. Drink it over the next 12-14 years. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Red-ruby. Aromatic nose of cassis cherry flowers mint vanilla and coffee bean. Firm and juicy in the mouth with a tighter structure than the 99. Finishes with very firm tannins but also sneaky sweetness. Dourthe prefers the 99 for its finesse and sweeter tannins; certainly these two vintages could hardly be more different in shape and style. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
