Château Léoville-Poyferré

Château Léoville-Poyferré

Chateau Leoville Poyferre began its modern history in the 1920s when it became the property of the Cuvelier family. They, like many other owners of the chateau, began in 1804 as negosinati. A major change came from Didier Cuvelier, a nearly 20-year-old vineyard replanting program that began in 1979. The 60 hectares of vines in Saint Julien are planted with 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. Leoville Poyferre wine offers a rich ripe fruit and soft strength style. Aromas of blackcurrant, spices, truffles and tobacco in combination with a sensual and rich structure are specific to this wine. Since 2000, Leoville Poyferre has maintained a stable and high quality. In fact, they have so many wonderful harvests that it is difficult to make a choice. You can enjoy it while it is younger, but with a few hours of decanting, and it is best to wait 10-15 years after bottling.

Bordeaux

Bordeaux

Bordeaux is perhaps the most famous wine region in France. It stretches 130 kilometers inland from the Atlantic coast. In 2018, 111,000 hectares of vineyards were registered, a figure that remains largely constant over the previous decade. The main varieties grown here are Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc and they are used to make different wines, each producer having its own blend and proportions of mixing the varieties. Here are produced some of the most famous, most expensive and long-lasting wines in the world - the well-known subregions Medoc, Graves, St. Emilion, Pomerol and many others. Bordeaux is divided by the Gironde River on the left and right banks. Characteristic of the left bank (Medoc, Haut Medoc, Graves) is the more serious presence of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend of wine, while on the right bank (St. Emillion, Pomerol) merlot predominates. In addition to red wines, Bordeaux is famous for the production of white, mainly a blend between Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, with the Sauternes subregion and the leading Chateau d’Yquem, famous for its complex and multi-layered, aromatic and sweet botrytized dessert wine.

Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon

This is probably the most famous red wine grape variety on Earth - a natural crossing between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc. From its origins in Bordeaux, this vine has successfully spread to almost every wine growing country in the world. Cabernet Sauvignon wines always demonstrate a handful of common character traits: deep color, excellent tannic structure and aromas of black berries and spices.
