Le Petit Lion du Marquis de Las Cases 2023

Leoville de Las Cases

Case Format: 6x75cl

Drinking Window: 2040.0

One of the largest and oldest classified growths in the Médoc, Château Léoville Las Cases is the leading estate in Saint-Julien. Following on from the 2007 vintage, they created their formidable second wine, Le Petit Lion du Marquis de Las Cases, amidst a period where several vineyard plots were being uprooted and replanted. The Léoville Las Cases vineyards comprise Cabernet Sauvignon (c.61%), Merlot (c.21%) and Cabernet Franc (c.16%) and thrive on a terroir of gravelly sand and clay soil. For Le Petit Lion du Marquis there is a significant portion of Merlot in the blend, with grapes taken from old vines from a north-facing plot close to Latour. This concentrated wine often features aromas and flavours of dark fruits and has been created with the intention to be drunk earlier than the grand vin.

James Suckling

This is very fresh and crunchy with blackberries, dark cherries and hints of crushed stones. It’s medium-bodied with impressive acidity and fine, silky tannins. Shows depth and structure, too. Bright and vivid on the finish. Lightly chunky. Second wine of Leoville Las Cases. 61% cabernet sauvignon, 31% merlot and 8% cabernet franc.

Displays the tannic grip and heft that you hope to get in the 2nd wine of Léoville Las Cases, opening with a great dollop of spice, cocoa bean, espresso, black chocolate, black tea, and bright cassis fruit - will need a few years after bottling to fully open up. Harvest September 9 to October 2, 30% new oak for ageing. Includes the vines for both La Petite Marquise and Le Petit Lion since the 2021 vintage.
