Degustation notes

Dark ruby colour, a slightly closed nose that reveals aromas of cassis, enhanced by hints of burning wood with light notes of juniper and cranberries, lovely elegance on the palate with delicate, well-coated tannins, very soft with a long finish accompanied by aromas of ripe fruit, graphite and underbrush.

Special notes

This is the second Château Leoville Las Cases wine, to be classified as a Second Grand Cru, although a wine of Premier Cru quality has been produced for years now. This second wine has as much character as the first and each vintage has become as dependable as the last.
