Château Léoville Las Cases

One of the oldest Medoc estates, Domaine de Léoville belonged to some of the wealthiest and most influential noble French families before it was acquired by the Las Cases family. The estate was split up between 1826 and 1840 as a result of the French Revolution. (Expropriation of emigrants’ property and constitution of egalitarian redistribution). Château Léoville Las Cases was created, thanks to a kind of birth right, from 3/5 of the original estate and the heart of the domain. The Grand Vin’s current terroir has therefore been at the historic heart of the original terroir since the 17th century. Pierre Jean, Adolphe and Gabriel de Las Cases were successive heirs to the property until 1900,...
A deep, brooding bouquet, very complex with dark ripe black fruits and a fine lacing of pepper and spice. The palate is structured and intense, rich in black cherry, kirsch and cassis with firm yet polished tannins. A serious and impressive wine in 2023.
Delicious with rare roast beef with seasonal vegetables and yorkshire pudding.
Harvest dates: 6th Septmber - 5th October. Yields of 44hl/ha. Aged in 50% new oak. Alc 13.5%
