Product Overview

Winery's Notes
"The 2010 vintage is a deep garnet color with ruby-vermeil highlights, showing pefect evolution.

Rich and complex on the nose, it is bursting with aromas of black fruit, plum, cassis, cedar, and spices.

On the palate, this vintage is imposing with fine-grained tannins. Notes of plum, spices and cedar carry through to the lingering finish. A touch of liquorice adds freshness to this powerful, beautifully balanced wine. A great Saint-Julien of exquisite precision."

Varietal Composition: 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot,7% Petit Verdot, 3% Cabernet Franc
Appellation: Pauillac AOC

98+ Points - Wine Advocate
"The wine out distances both Leoville Las Cases and Leoville Barton, but all three of them are compelling efforts. Full-bodied, dense purple in color, with floral notes intermixed with blackberries, cassis, graphite and spring flowers, this full-bodied, legendary effort is long and opulent, with wonderfully abundant yet sweet tannin, a skyscraper-like mid-palate and a thrilling, nearly one-minute finish. This spectacular effort from Poyferre that should drink well for 30+ years.

Another spectacular wine from the Cuvelier family, Leoville Poyferre (along with Ducru Beaucaillou) may be one of the two best wines of St.-Julien year after year these days. This is a large estate, covering nearly 200 acres, and the final blend of the 2010 Leoville Poyferre is 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, a whopping 34% Merlot and the rest 7% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc." -RP, 2/27/2013

98 points (Cellar Selection) - Wine Enthusiast
"A wine of architectural strength and classical proportions, this has straight lines that mark the packed, concentrated fruits, which are sustained by its tannins. This is certainly the best wine that Léoville-Poyferré has produced, sumptuous while so finely structured." -RV, 2/1/2013
