65% Cabernet Sauvignon 24% Merlot 7% Petit Verdot 4% Cabernet Franc
Léoville-Poyferré is making greater and greater efforts to push the quality level closer to that of its neighbor, Leoville-Las-Cases. The hiring of the famed oenologist, Michel Rolland, the beginning of malolactic fermentation in barrel (started in 1994), a stricter selection process, and the construction of a superb new cuverie are all signs that Leoville-Poyferre is set to emerge as one of the stars of the northern Medoc. Sweet, jammy, blackcurrant, and spicy oak aromas reveal few signs of evolution. Beautifully integrated tannin is barely noticeable in this suave, elegant, concentrated yet strikingly well-balanced wine. With a saturated purple colour, admirable sweetness of fruit, fine purity and extract, and a gracious personality, the 1995 Leoville-Poyferre will be at its peak between 2001-2020.
