The 2015 vintage displays a brilliant, limpid deep garnet color with purple highlights. This expressive Saint-Julien is bursting with aromas of red and black fruit. Upon aeration, these enticing aromas intensify, revealing crème de cassis accompanied by lush, toasted notes. Powerful, plump, and generous, the tannic structure gives way to a singular freshness that brings a lot of elegance, characteristic of a great Saint-Julien. Dense ripe black fruit echoes through to the finish, accented by a hint of vanilla. This beautiful vintage shows magnificent complexity, placing it among the great vintages of the estate.
Nothing tells a greater story than a bottle of wine. The vines take root in the soils providing the immutable backdrop, endowing the wines with their unique qualities. Léoville Poyferré is anchored in one of the most intimate appellations of the Médoc: Saint-Julien.
Scattered across the appellation as far as the eye can see, like stars pebbling the evening sky, the secrets of Saint-Julien are held within their most precious gems: graves. Carried along by the alluvial deposit, these stones were polished by the Gironde as it formed the iconic Estuary that divides the viticultural landscape of Bordeaux.
The 920 hectares of the appellation have become a collection of manicured gardens that provide a myriad of attributes. They are the wealth of our terroir, and offer us the most beautiful pallet with which to compose our wines.
