We are pleased to present this special 3-magnum case with the 2003, 2004 and 2005 vintages. Curated from our historical château cellar, this limited edition is designed for afficionados of Château Léoville Poyferré. (Re)discover the quintessence of the Léoville Poyferré style through these three vintages at their apogee.

This custom-made wooden case has gently rounded edges, a brass latch, and leather retainers.

When opened, a quote from Antoine de Saint-Exupéry is revealed : « What is essential is invisible to the eye ».

A motto that the Cuvelier Family and their teams have embraced, and one that will make perfect sense when you open these precious bottles.

Tasting Notes

Léoville Poyferré, 2003 :

The 2003 vintage exhibits a deep garnet color with attractive vermilion highlights.

Elegant and quite expressive, the nose is embellished by empyreumatic notes of leather and toast, intermingled with fragrances of spices, vanilla, and subtle notes of black fruit.

This full-bodied, generous wine has a silky texture with fine, velvety tannins. Notes of musk contribute complexity. Powerful and racy, the finish lingers on with a touch of freshness. There is plenty of enjoyment still to come.

Léoville Poyferré, 2004 :

This deep garnet-colored 2004 reveals vermilion highlights.

Fragrant aromas of kirsch and sour cherry jam jump from the glass. There is considerable depth, accented by notes of cedar and toast. Extraordinarily complex, this wine continues to hold on to its youthfulness.

Generous and plump, it possesses fine-grained tannins. Notes of kirsch reappear on the mid-palate, evolving into more intense aromas of mocha and dark chocolate. The finish is persistent and warm.  An exceptional wine to accompany your finest cuisine.

Léoville Poyferré, 2005 :

Bright and limpid, the 2005 vintage presents a dark garnet color with vermilion highlights.

This superbly concentrated wine offers attractive aromas of jammy black fruit, along with empyreumatic and torrefied notes. Hints of cedar and eucalyptus add a touch of freshness.

Opulent and powerful, the tannins still have a bit of grip, yet the texture of the wine remains silky. Retro-olfaction reveals aromas of blackcurrant jam, white tobacco, and a hint of oak. This remarkable vintage is endowed with an extraordinary aromatic persistence and a fresh finish.
