- Pavillon de Léoville Poyferré is the 2nd wine of Château Léoville Poyferré, which was recognized as a Second Classified Growth in 1855. Château Léoville Poyferré has been owned and run by the Cuvelier family since 1920. The arrival of Didier Cuvelier at the head of the property in 1979, hailed a new era for the success of the domain and the restoration of Léoville Poyferré to its rightful rank among the great Médoc wines.
Made from younger vines on the property, this red Bordeaux is balanced, fruity and easy to drink now without prolonged cellar aging. There are 4 varieties in this bottle: the majority is Cabernet Sauvignon, then Merlot, and small amounts of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc to lend depth. In order not to mark the vintage, this second wine is aged in old barrels.
Elegant and distinguished, the color is deep and brilliant. It is rich with aromas of blackcurrant and toasted oak. The mouth is fruity with a very solid and persistent structure. Enjoy it with grilled red meat and local cheese.
