The elegance and balance of a Second Cru Classe of the Saint-Julien appellation

The estate

2nd Classified Growth of 1855Chateau Leoville Poyferre belongs to the elite circle of Bordeaux Grands Crus. With origins dating back to 1638, the Leoville Poyferre estate is a real jewel of the Medoc. Succeeding Didier Cuvelier, Sarah Lecompte-Cuvelier now presides over the destiny of this icon of the Saint-Julien appellation.

The vineyard

Enjoying a magnificent location in the Saint-Julien appellation, Chateau Leoville-Poyferre reigns over a 60-hectare vineyard dedicated to the production of the chateau's First Wine and Second Wine. The vines are aged 37 years on average and located on terraces of Mindel gravel upon clayey-sandy subsoils. The estate has held the HVE 3 certification since the 2017 vintage.

Vinification and aging

Harvested manually in crates, the bunches were rigorously sorted in order to keep only the best quality fruit. The plot-by-plot vinification was carried out in tapered, thermoregulated stainless steel tanks. Cold pre-fermentation maceration preceded the alcoholic fermentation with selected yeasts, followed by malolactic fermentation in new oak barrels. The 18 to 20 months of aging was carried out in French oak barrels (80% new, 20% of one previous wine).

The blend

The Chateau Leoville Poyferre 2020 was made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (64%), Merlot (31%), Cabernet Franc (3%), Petit Verdot (2%).
