Description

The 2014 Léoville-Poyferré is one of the standout Left Bank wines of the vintage. Demonstrating outstanding clarity and freshness on the nose, this seems to just "leap" out of the glass like an over-excited Yorkshire terrier. The palate is medium-bodied with lithe tannins, silky smooth in texture, a perfect line of acidity and a harmonious finish that slips down the throat. This is going to be irresistible for the next 20 years. Tasted at the Léoville-Poyferré vertical at the château with Sara Lecompte Cuvelier. Drink 2021-2050. Neal Martin Vinous (95)

Hand-picked in crates, the bunches are rigorously sorted on the bunches and then by optical sorting on the berries in order to keep only the high-quality grapes. The vinification is carried out in temperature-controlled stainless steel truncated cone-shaped vats. Pre-fermentation cold maceration precedes alcoholic fermentation with selected yeasts and then malolactic fermentation in new barrels. The wine is aged for 18 to 20 months in French oak barrels (80% new, 20% second-fill barrels).

Chateau Leoville Povferre a 2nd Classified Growth of 1855, whose origins date back to the beginning of the 17th century, is one of the most prestigious properties in the Saint-Julien appellation, on the left bank of the Bordeaux region. Managed by the Cuvelier family and neighbouring illustrious properties such as Pichon Baron and Léoville Las Cases, Château Léoville Poyferré benefits from a terroir renowned for its nutrient-poor Garonne gravel soils, ideal conditions for the vineyard to flourish blissfully. In a perpetual quest for perfection, the vinification of each parcel is monitored by the oenologist Michel Rolland, in order to gently extract the most authentic expression of each grape variety and each parcel. The wines of Château Léoville Poyferré truly shine with their elegance, depth, balance and power.
