Nicknamed 'The Apotheosis' by the producers at Chateau Leoville-Poyferre since they believe that this wine is the climax of several factors of perfection in the vintage. Powerful and complex aromas, direct attack on the palate with a silky mouthfeel, full bodied flavours and a long aromatic finish.
This wine is made form 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot and 6% Petit Verdot.
The origin of the estate dates back to 1638. At that time, Léoville was the largest Médoc property, fragmented over time and generations. The legacy of the grand vin of Léoville Poyferré began in 1840 and went on to be consecrated as a Second Classified Growth fifteen years later. Didier Cuvelier has presided over the destiny of this gem since 1979.
Vinification is mainly focused on the quality and finesse of the tannins, characterized by research and innovation in maintaining qualitative tradition and lineage of the style of Léoville Poyferré. The 26 double-walled tanks are used for cold pre-fermentation macerations for 6 days. The extraction of color occurs gradually and pure fruit aromas are revealed. Particular care is taken in the selection of barrels for subtle oak in harmony with the wines. The wines are aged in barrels for 18-20 months.
Purplish crimson. Scented and beguiling. Far from a heavyweight and with lots of tannin but with some lift too. Super clean. Well judged!
Sweet mocha and lightly perfumed with violets. Very firm grip but rounded and ripe tannins. Concentrated, long, a baby still. Lovely juicy finish with great freshness.
