Second Grand Cru Classé in 1855, the estate is located in the prestigious Saint-Julien appellation. With 80 hectares of great terroir and the centuries-old know-how of its teams, the estate's wines have been produced by the Cuvelier family since 1920.

Excellent with noble, succulent and spicy red meats, duck, pigeon, mature cheeses, game.

65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot, 3% Cabernet Franc La vendemmia è manuale con vinificazione separata di ogni parcella, in tini di acciaio inox termoregolati. La fermentazione malolattica viene effettuata al 50% in barrique di rovere francese, nuove per il 75% durante un periodo di 18-20 mesi.
The 2013 Léoville-Poyferre has a delightful nose with simple blackcurrant and wild strawberry fruits, maintaining Didier Cuvelier's more opulent style, whilst retaining delineation and concentration. The palate is medium-bodied, with delicately gripping tannins, good acidity and structure, not complex but with a highly effective blackberry and cassis finish that persists in the mouth. Chapeau Monsieur Cuvelier - one of the best Saint Juliens of this vintage.
