Château
Léoville Poyferré

Saint-Julien
Grand Cru Classé en 1855
the Cuvelier family
Léoville Poyferré came into existence in 1840 as the result of a division of a larger estate, and was included among the second growths in the famous 1855 classification.

The Cuvelier family bought the estate in 1920 and Didier Cuvelier has been in charge of management since 1979.

He has made major investments, both in terms of equipment and human resources, ever since. The many improvements have always been in synergy with Léoville Poyferré’s outstanding terroir, and all efforts are focused on faithfully reflecting this in the wine.

Constant care and attention, as well as innovation, have resulted in a very great wine that is distributed around the world.

Léoville Poyferré has perfect balance, great finesse, elegance, and remarkable ageing potential.
