Classified as a 2eme cru classe, the Saint Julien appellation is small in size, yet big on talent. In the heart of the famed Medoc vineyard, Chateau Leoville Poyferre has always been one of the most prestigious estates of this terroir. The origin of the estate dates back to 1638. At that time, Leoville was the largest domain in the Medoc. Since then, it has been fragmented over time and generations. The legacy of the grand vin of Leoville Poyferre began in 1840, consecrated as a Second Classified Growth fifteen years later. Didier Cuvelier has presided over its destiny since 1979.

The growing season started rather badly after a mild winter follow by hot and wet spring and early summer bringing more problem with mildew. From Middle of July everything change and the weather was constantly hot till middle of September when rain came but somehow was a relief for the stressed vines, and did not affect the harvest which took place over three wonderful week ending mid-October.
