The 20120 Léoville Poyferré has a deep garnet-purple color and blows from the glass with enticing notes of chocolate-covered cherries, blueberry pie, dried mulberries and blackcurrant syrup plus suggestions of camphor, espresso, spice cake and tea. It is medium to full bodied on the palate with good freshness with blackberry preserves and exotic spice layers. An already incredibly impressive wine that after the end of the barrel aging when the tannins have been absorbed will enhance the beautiful fruit even more.

In the heart of the Médoc, Château Léoville Poyferré has always been one of the most prestigious wineries. There was once a single domain named Léoville that was famous throughout the region. Throughout history, it has come into the possession of different families through heirs and major events. In 1865 the domain came into the hands of the bankers Baron d'Erlanger and Armand Lalande. They had to contend with setbacks in the form of phylloxera and mildew epidemics. Today the castle belongs to the Cuvelier family. They have invested enormously since the 1980s with extraordinary results. The château is today one of the top within Saint-Julien.

FACT: In the Tab: Appendix you will find the official fact sheet of this fine wine. We will automatically send it to you when you order this wine. It is worth mentioning that we buy the wines directly and never purchase them through the intermediary because we do not know what journeys the wine has made and how it has been treated. The wines come from the cellars of the Chateau directly into our conditioned Warehouse in Dordrecht where all our wines are stored. If you come to pick it up, you will often also receive a nice discount.
