Located in the appellation of Saint Julien, between Margaux and Pauillac, this estate is recognized as a Second Classified Growth and was established in 1638. Since 1979 it had been under the direction of Didier Cuvelier. Currently
Sara Lecompte-Cuvelier is guiding its future course.
Chateau Leoville Poyferre:
Varying shades of magenta and purple revel a wine that flaunts it’s extroverted personality. Beneath are macerated black plums and lilacs seamlessly melded together with Asian spices. The textures and layers in this wine seem endless. It is concentrated and harmonious at the same time with some undercurrents of mocha and graphite. An impressive and noteworthy achievement.
Chateau Moulin Riche:
The high proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon (69%) draws you in with scents of spring flowers and warm fruits. This crème de cassis and black cherry fruit driven wine offers a medium-bodied core. The framework is silky and textured with juicy tannins. This is not a second wine, but instead a distinct chateau that is situated more inland.
