The dazzling expression of an elegant and savoury Saint-Julien Cru Classé

The estate
With wines that achieve, vintage after vintage, a certain prowess, excellence and elegance, Château Léoville Las Cases is today among the most iconic properties of the prestigious Saint-Julien appellation located on the left bank of the Bordeaux region.

The vineyard
The 55-hectare vineyard of Château Léoville Las Cases is planted inside the famous Clos de Léoville, home to a veritable mosaic of terroirs. Located near the Gironde, the vineyard benefits from the river’s role as a thermo-regulator, guaranteeing mild temperatures and offering a barrier against frost. With its combination of Günzian gravel soils upon gravel-sandy subsoils with deep clay, the terroir of Château Léoville Las Cases meets all the necessary conditions for the production of legendary wines.

The vintage
The superb terroir of the Grand Clos de Léoville Las Cases triumphed over the challenges imposed by the contrasting weather of 2019. After a mild winter and a cool spring, summer of 2019 was dry and hot, causing moderate water stress for the vines. From August to the harvest, the significant thermal amplitudes between the night and the day allowed for a slow ripening of the grape varieties, while also maintaining great acidity levels.

The blend
Cabernet sauvignon (79%), merlot (11%), cabernet franc (10%).

The tasting
Tasted en primeur, the Grand Vin de Léoville by Marquis de Las Cases 2019 impresses with its exceptional expression, revealing vibrant and intense fruit. The palate presents the distinctive signature style of the property, combining freshness, elegance and a delicious tannin structure, which lingers for a long time on the finish. This magnificent Saint-Julien, with a remarkable potential for age, will dazzle fans of the property for decades to come.
