Producer Note
"Originally called Mont-Moytié after the first owner, Jean de Moytié, the estate changed name when the domaine fell to the Maison de Gascq by marriage in 1740. Under Alexandre de Gascq the domain became the biggest in the Médoc, reaching around 120 hectares. The estate has been owned by the Cuvelier family since 1979. The ownership has 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. The hallmarks of the wines are balance, finesse and elegance." Vineyard
Intensive work takes place in the vineyard to ensure the health and maturity of each vine. Great attention is given to the gravel soils, with soil analysis taking place to monitor the health of the terroir. Ploughing after the harvest stimulates the soil and improves soil aeration, whilst encouraging the roots to feed deeper. The vines are Double Guyot trained and are of between 17 to 20 years old with three buds per branch. Canopy management and thinning out, desuckering, debudding and deleafing, ensures optimum sun penetration, airflow through the vines and concentration of flavours in the berries. Winemaking
The bunches were sorted by hand before destemming. They were then sorted for a second time mechanically and manually before crushing. Each plot and grape variety was fermented separately in stainless steel vats. Short and frequent pump overs were adapted to the character of each plot. Maceration lasted four weeks. Aged in barrels - that have been used for one or two vintages- for between 18 and 20 months. Fined with egg white. Tasting Note

It opens with expressive aromas of blackberry and dark cherry followed by spices, violets, graphite and hints of earthiness. The palate is plush with even more dark fruits, spices and woody notes.
