The 80 hectares of vineyards of Léoville-Poyferré, located in the heart of Saint-Julien, date back to the middle of the 17th century, yet ownership has changed hands five times since. After achieving Second Growth status in the 1855 Classification of Bordeaux, Léoville-Poyferré has maintained a level of excellence over the course of its lifetime. The Cuvelier family has owned the Château for almost a century, purchasing the estate in 1920. They strive to find harmony between modernity and tradition, combining the latest in technological advances with a dutiful respect for their Bordeaux heritage.

The 2005 Léoville-Poyferré is one of the top wines from Saint-Julien in this legendary vintage. A blend of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot and 6% Petit Verdot. From the estate itself: "Shiny and limpid, the color of the 2005 vintage is a dark garnet with vermeil highlights. Concentrated notes of toast and jammy black fruit emerge, followed by delicate oak and blonde tobacco with hints of cedar and eucalyptus that add a touch of freshness. Full and plump on the palate, the tannins still have some grip, but the texture of the wine remains silky. This exhilarating vintage offers extraordinary aromatic persistence with a fresh finish." An amazing wine from a legendary Saint-Julien Super Second.
