WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING

“A star of the vintage, this classy, cedary, black currant, and sweet cherry-scented, dense ruby-colored Las Cases exhibits a beautiful dosage of new oak, medium body, expansive, ripe, concentrated flavors, plenty of glycerin, and exceptional purity. It is low in acidity, and delicious.” The Wine Advocate, 90pts 

OUR NOTES

Château Léoville Las Cases is today among the most emblematic estates of the prestigious Saint-Julien appellation located on the Left Bank from the Bordeaux region. It is recognized as one of the oldest estates in the Médoc with a heritage based on a long wine tradition.

The strength of this estate is its exceptional terroir. Château Léoville Las Cases has 55 hectares planted inside the renowned Clos de Léoville with a complex mosaic of terroirs. The Gironde River near the estate benefits the vineyards as a heat regulator. It helps to keep temperatures moderate and acts as a frost barrier. The vines grow in Günz gravel soils that is made up of a gravel-sandy subsoil on top of a deep layer of clay. This terroir is at the core of the estate’s exceptional wines that display the typicity of each of the symbolic Left Bank black varieties, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.

Le Grand Vin de Leoville du Marquis de Las Cases brings together the complexity and uniqueness from the Clos Leoville Las Cases plots that were part of the estate’s original domaine. It is of monumental structure and is at the height of refinement and nobility on the nose and palate. It displays a personality with unique singularity, which leaves an unforgettable impression on the memory of purists.
