Justerini & Brooks Tasting note

Château Léoville Poyferré, 2ème Cru Classé, St Julien, 2007

Backward on the nose, distant hints of chalky minerals and bright red fruits; on the palate there is darker fruit character and smooth tannins, dry and deep, black coffee and a fine finish; subtle, refined.

Jane Anson, Inside Bordeaux

Strong coffee grains on the nose, like you are standing in front of a percolating machine. I am a big fan of 2007s right now, there are so many that are drinking perfectly, but the coffee and grilled cedar notes here are a little intrusive, showing clear oak (and vintage) influence, although unquestionably it lends a welcoming pull-up-a-chair feel right now, and will lessen over the next five years as it evolves further in bottle. On the palate the coffee blends in with brambled fruits that are ripe and generous but still have tar and eucalyptus on the finish. Overall a great wine to drink with a few hours in a carafe, but you will find more naturally expressive St Juliens in this vintage. 80% new oak, harvest September 26 to October 10.

Neal Martin, Vinous

The 2007 Léoville-Poyferré has a bright, vivid and playful bouquet with red cherries and crushed strawberry mixed with tobacco, sous-bois and smoke aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, well judged acidity, harmonious and quite fleshy on the finish. This is a deceptively seductive, easygoing Poyferré, not complex but built to give pleasure. Tasted at the Léoville-Poyferré vertical at the château with Sara Lecompte Cuvelier.

Château Léoville Poyferré

Château Léoville Poyferré

The vineyards at Leoville Poyferre originally formed part of the great Leoville estate. Following the death of Marquis de la Cases, the vast property was split into three; the Marquis’ son Jean-Pierre took the third that is now Leoville Las Cases, the Marquis’ daughter, Jeanne’s share became what we know as Leoville Poyferre following her marriage to the Baron de Poyferre and the final third was auctioned off and purchased by Hugh Barton.

Today Didier Cuvelier holds the reigns. He has been responsible for the property’s renaissance, investing heavily to modernise the chai and replanting much of the estate’s Merlot plantings with his favoured Cabernet Sauvignon. Didier can come across rather unassuming, however, unlike other hosts who like impress themselves on tasters, this just isn’t his style. Once you start to engage Didier about his wines there no-one more passionate in Bordeaux.

Of all the Leoville estates, Poyferre produces the most perfumed and most exotic. There is a lushness and seductiveness to all Didier’s wines. Moulin Riche is produced from a separate plot of vines near to the Pauillac border.
