Château Léoville Poyferré 1998

SKU:1023/98 Bordeaux - Saint-Julien - Red - 13° - More Info
  • Parker/WA : 88

Due to a division of the large Léoville estate, Château Léoville- Poyferré was created in 1840 and included as a second growth in the famous 1855 Classification. In 1920, the Cuvelier family purchased the estate and Didier Cuvelier has been in charge since 1979.Major investments were made thereafter to bring out the best in the vineyards, and the cellars were also renovated. In 1994, noted consulting oenologist Michel Rolland began to offer his precious winemaking advice. The final blend is made after many careful tastings. Château Léoville-Poyferré is aged in oak barrels, 75% of which are new every year. It is an extremely well-balanced wine with a great deal of finesse and excellent ageing potential.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The dark ruby-colored, medium-bodied 1998 offers aromas of underbrush, black currants, cherries, minerals, and vanillin. While sweet, rich, and stylish, it lacks the depth necessary to merit an outstanding score. Drink it over the next 12-14 years.
