Sara Cuvelier

For over a century we have been the inheritors of a unique terroir: a heritage that is both a privilege and a responsibility. This responsibility is at the very heart of our environmental consciousness, in the ever changing landscape of the world.
Thanks to our teams’ daily dedication we are able to reconcile these two ambitions, excellence and accessibility so that each tasting is memorable. This is why we also take great pride in warmly welcoming our guests at the property throughout the year, a warmth of heart and character which is famed in the North of France and true to our roots.

Origins

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.
