“Expressions des Terroirs”

News | 5 November 2021

Discover the wonderfully diverse terroirs of Saint-Julien in this exclusive case.
One of a kind, these wines have been selected to fully express the many nuances of the special terroir of Saint-Julien.

des Terroirs

For over 100 years, the Cuvelier Family has been tirelessly passionate about this multi-faceted land. Just as the lacemaker builds patterns point by point, each as delicate as they are varied, the Cuvelier Family reveals with each passing vintage the contours of the identity of the terroir with patience and authenticity.

These wines bear witness to the diversity of the gravel soils paired with the secular ‘savoir- faire’ of our teams. Château Léoville Poyferré, Château Moulin Riche and Pavillon de Léoville Poyferré reveal with confidence the secrets of a pluralist and surprising land. Generous soils and sandy-clay subsoils are paired by the deep gravel beds that were polished by the unrelenting flow of the Garonne Estuary over millennia.

Nature finds perfect balance; the clays bring freshness to the vines whereas the many gravels reflect and radiate the sun’s heat.

These vintages have been specially selected to reveal the voluptuousness and the personality of each wine, perfect for enjoying now or cellaring for a few more years. Let yourself be swept away by the beauty of their expressions.

The finest expressions of this terroir are embodied in these three charismatic wines, crafted by the same passionate team:

Château Léoville Poyferré

The richness of the Mindel gravel soil forges the complexity of the Grand Vin, which never ceases to captivate the palate with its perfect balance, its profound generosity and elegant finesse.

Pavillon de Léoville Poyferré

Young vines that are planted throughout the vineyard on the Mindel gravel terraces with their sandy-clay subsoil give rise to a second wine that is utterly charming, full of crunchy red fruits, an ethereal pleasure that is a prologue to its elder.

Château Moulin Riche

Hailing from of single block of 20 hectares to the northwest of the appellation, the vines flourish on Garonnaise gravels, sand and clay that give a birth to a wine with elegant generosity.
