Estate Notes

Château Léoville Poyferré 2000 produced a breathtaking wine in the great 2000 vintage, which simply blew the critics away.

Château Léoville Poyferré produces some of the softest, most supple wines in Saint-Julien, although in the last decade or so, they have put on more weight and body. This second growth offers relatively good value-for-money in top Bordeaux growth terms.

Reviews

“The plushest, most ostentatious and dramatic of all the Leovilles in 2000, this wine is already sumptuous, displaying some nuances in its huge nose of vanilla bean, black chocolate, jammy black cherries, cassis, and graphite in a flamboyant style. Opulent, savory, rich, and full-bodied, it is a head-turning, prodigious wine.” eRobertParker.com (June 2010)

"During the 1990s and early years of the 21st century quality has truly been in the ascendant, and it seems clear that Poyferré is again producing the standard of wines of which it has always been capable." winedoctor.com
