The aromatic finesse and smoothness of a fine Saint-Julien wine

The estate

With vintages that achieve the feat, vintage after vintage, of reaching the heights of excellence and elegance, today Château Léoville Las Cases is one of the finest Saint-Julien wines, a prestigious appellation located on the left bank of the Bordeaux region.

The vineyard

Château Léoville Las Cases’ 55 hectares of vines are planted within the famous Clos de Léoville, its complexity constitutes a real patchwork of terroirs. Located near the Gironde estuary, the vineyard benefits from the estuary’s temperature-regulating influence, which guarantees mild temperatures and provides a barrier against frost. Along with the presence of Günzian gravel soils and resting on gravelly-sandy subsoils with clay that is more or less deep, the terroir of Château Léoville Las Cases encompasses all the conditions required to produce vintages with a legendary identity.

The vintage

Although the cool conditions at the beginning of spring delayed budburst, the subsequent mild conditions ensured an even and high-quality flowering period. The summer was dry and sunny. The grapes were harvested at optimum ripeness and from a perfectly healthy vineyard.

The blend

Cabernet Sauvignon (76%)

Merlot (15%)

Cabernet Franc (9%).

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Medium to deep garnet colored, the 2009 Léoville Las Cases rocks up with a drop-dead gorgeous nose of baked blackberries, warm plums and crème de cassis with suggestions of violets, rose hip tea, dark chocolate, menthol and sandalwood. Full-bodied, rich, concentrated and decadent in the mouth, it has super ripe, fine-grained tannins and seamless freshness, finishing very long and exotic.
