Didier Cuvelier

The Saint Julien appellation is small in size, yet big on talent. In the heart of the famed Médoc vineyard, Château Léoville Poyferré has always been one of the most prestigious estates of this terroir.
Since 1979, our family has been dedicated to a vision that leaves no room for improvisation. Every decision, every investment , is a step towards ultimate quality, one that makes a simple wine an exceptional one, recognized as a Second Classified Growth in 1855.

Unwavering loyalty to its origins

The origin of the estate dates back to 1638. At that time, Léoville was the largest domain in the Médoc. Since then, it has been fragmented over time and generations.
The legacy of the grand vin of Léoville Poyferré began in 1840, consecrated as a Second Classified Growth fifteen years later. Didier Cuvelier has presided over the destiny of this gem since 1979.


Terroir and vinification

Precise, meticulous orchestration

Between Margaux and Pauillac on the left bank of the Gironde Estuary, Saint-Julien is a small appellation of 920 hectares. As far as the eye can see, the land is covered with pebbles that naturally regulate soil temperature. Gravel, sand and clay are the other components of this geological alchemy, the result of sedimentary deposits by the Garonne in the Quaternary period. The vineyards of the appellation stretch over gravelly ridges that have been finely chiseled by erosion and designed to promote excellent drainage. Man could not have done better.
