Made mostly from Cabernet Sauvignon with a little Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. This is one serious Bordeaux! Packed in tight, brooding and super masculine. You can almost smell the tannin here. Plenty of wood on the palate, which softens a bit with decanting. Cassis, granite, cedar and spice for days. Needs time, either in a decanter or in a cellar, and it wants big meat.

Château Léoville Las Cases is one of the largest and oldest of the classified growths in the Médoc of Bordeaux, Franc. It is the largest estate of the three Léoville properties, and without a doubt, the leading estate in the St. Julien appellation of Bordeax's Left Bank. The estate has 97 hectares of vineyards which are situated on gravel and clay soils. The largest vineyard plot is surrounded by a stone wall which stretches between the commune of St. Julien to Chateau Latour.

The wine is a Cabernet Sauvignon dominated blend (74%), with 14% Cabernet Franc and 12% Merlot, matured in oak barriques, 70-80% of which is new (depending on the vintage), for 18 months. Leoville Las Cases is certainly one of the most perfumed wines in the Medoc, one reason being it is fermented at colder than average temperatures, preserving those lovely aromatics and flavor phenolics.

Léoville Las Cases is a 2eme Cru Classe (2nd Growth in the 1855 Classification scheme) in name but makes 1er Cru Classé quality wines.
