Why did Angie picked this wine?

 

For a Second Growth, Leoville Poyferre provides the best value for the buck, their quality is consistent, but their marketing is not quite as skilled (flamboyant?) compared to other classified growth. What does that mean to you? You are able to collect an exceptional vintage Bordeaux (1989 baby!) that’s ready to drink now, directly from the winery, for less than two bills! We’ve direct imported some 1983 vintage Leoville Poyferre earlier this year (not quite as great of a vintage as the 1989, but I’m biased toward it since it’s my birth year) and I was blown away by the wine. They recondition all the bottles so it looks and taste pristine. With the Bordeaux market blowing up globally. This is certainly a steal of a deal!

酒莊歷史可追溯自1638年,聖朱里安產區(Saint Julien)寬廣的李維莊園(Leoville)在法國大革命時期已是當地最大的梅多克產區。經過了多年的繼承和變更後,莊園最後被分割成了三座耳熟能詳的酒莊:李維拉斯卡堡(Leoville-Las-Cases)、李維巴頓堡(Leoville-Barton)以及建立於1840年的龍柏菲酒莊(Leoville-Poyferre)。因為出產的酒款品質非常優秀,龍柏菲酒莊很快就獲得名聲,在1855年的分級中被評為二級園!

 

品質掛保證的這座酒莊,因為剛剛提到的歷史因素,旗下的葡萄園主要有五大區域,全部落在聖朱里安區排水最良好、葡萄藤發展最平衡的區域。因此,酒莊總是能釀造出重量級、複雜度高的好酒~~

 

1994年開始,手工採摘的葡萄分為小筐運送到酒莊。第一次手工篩選後進行除梗作業,接著再使用光學篩選機做第二次分揀,最後壓榨。葡萄園的每個分區都會獨立發酵,總共有56個不同的不銹鋼發酵罐可供使用,而其中27個是雙層外壁的新型發酵罐。

 

Tasting Notes –

 

經過層層作業釀製出來的酒款,酒色深而成熟。盛裝在杯子裡酒能聞到滿滿的香氣:覆盆子、海鹽還有一些些的野味。這支酒酒體厚重,入口後可感覺到多種層次,主要有黑色水果加上菸草味,酸度調整得很好,尾韻濃郁又帶點野禽香,持久性和活力都相當令人印象深刻。

More about the winery -

With origins dating back to 1638, Saint Julien's expansive Leoville estate was the largest vineyard in all the Medoc at the time of the French Revolution. After various successions and changes, the estate was eventually divided into the three Leoville properties we know today: Leoville-Las-Cases, Leoville-Barton, and Leoville-Poyferre, established in 1840. The outstanding quality of Leoville Poyferre wines gained early recognition when it was ranked second growth in the 1855 Classification.

 

The various divisions throughout the history of the estate have split the vineyards of Leoville-Poyferre into five large areas. They include all the main types of gravely, well-drained soils present in Saint Julien and a balanced environment for the vines. This diversity contributes to the wines magnitude and complexity.

 

Since 1994, grapes have been harvested into small crates. The grape bunches are first sorted by hand on tables before destemming, then a second time by optical sorting maching before crushing. Each vineyard plot is vinifided individually in one of the fifty-six stainless steel vats, of which twenty seven are double-walled.

 

Tasting Notes –

 

A deep color with maturity. It has a glorious nose that leaps from the glass: raspberry, sea salt and a touch of game all with marvelous definition. The palate is full-bodied, layers of black fruits laced with tobacco, well-judged acidity with a dense, slightly gamey, brambly finish with great persistency and vigor.
