Perhaps the most seductive of all the Léovilles, Poyferré has been guided back to greatness by Didier Cuvelier, who took over the management of the property in 1979. The Cuvelier family purchased the Saint-Julien estate in 1920 and today, his legacy has been handed to his cousin, Sara Lecompte Cuvelier. With a renewed energy, commitment and passion,
Sara has already inscribed two outstanding vintages to her tenure.
If you're wondering why there are three Léoville wine properties in this appellation: it is down to the French Revolution. The estate was seized by the state and auctioned off, giving birth to Léoville Barton, Léoville-Las Cases and Léoville Poyferré.
