Description

The character and elegance of a Saint-Julien Second Wine

The estate

Château Léoville Las Cases is one of the most emblematic estates in the prestigious Saint-Julien appellation on the Left Bank of the Bordeaux region, with vintage after vintage reaching new heights of excellence and elegance.

The vineyard

Le Petit Lion du Marquis de Las Cases is a Saint-Julien wine from a vineyard planted within the famous Clos de Léoville, the complexity of which forms a veritable mosaic of terroirs. Situated close to the Gironde, the vineyard benefits from the river's role as a thermal regulator, guaranteeing mild temperatures and providing a barrier against frost. Combined with the presence of gravelly soils derived from the Günz, resting on subsoils of a gravelly-sandy nature with more or less deep clay, the terroir of Château Léoville Las Cases combines all the conditions needed to produce vintages with legendary allure.

The wine

Le Petit Lion du Marquis de Las Cases was created in 2007. The Second Wine of Château Léoville Las Cases, Le Petit Lion du Marquis de Las Cases is made from plots of vines in the Clos Léoville Las Cases. Following in the footsteps of its two predecessors, Le Petit Lion du Marquis de Las Cases is vinified and aged with the same care as the other wines from the estate.

The vintage

The vines budded early following a mild winter. A warm spring with little rain gave way to a scorching summer. However, rainfall from late May to late June prevented water stress. The vintage's climatic conditions were conducive to producing grapes with a high degree of ripeness. 

Blend

Le Petit Lion du Marquis de Las Cases 2022 is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (55.5%), Merlot (38.5%) and Cabernet Franc (6%).
