Grand vin de Léoville du Marquis de Las Cases, Saint Julien, 2001
The history of the Domaine de Léoville dates back to 1604, when the Domaine de Léoville, facing the Gironde, was at the time one of the most important properties of the Medoc. The vineyard was owned by the wealthiest and most influential French noble families in the region. After the Revolution, the estate of Léoville was divided into several parcels. Chateau Leoville Las Cases is born as a result of this reshuffle. For decades, Château Léoville Las Cases is run by the same family. Today, Jean-Hubert Delon, sole owner, is the representative of the family tradition.
Chateau Leoville-Las Cases
Notes of kirsch, blackberry preserves and blackcurrant pastilles with underlying scents of star anise, cumin seed, potpourri, oolong tea and tobacco leaf plus a waft of incense. The elegant palate explodes with a myriad of exotic spice, floral and dried berries notes, framed by soft tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long and with impeccable poise and sophistication.
