Château Leoville-Las-Cases

Chateau Leoville-Las-Cases is a Second Growth Bordeaux located in St.-Julien-Beychevelle next door to Chateau Latour. Leoville-Las-Cases was part of a much larger estate that was broken up after the French revolution. It remains large by Bordeaux standards however, and today is comprised of 240 acres of vineyards. For decades the estate was expertly run by Michel Delon, whose wines were always considered some of the best of the Medoc. His son Jean-Hubert is now in charge, and the quality and reputation of the estate’s Bordeaux remain outstanding. Many collectors consider Leoville-Las-Cases in its best vintages to equal the First Growth wines of the region. The vineyards are planted in 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot. Annual production of the signature Bordeaux is 216,000 cases. The average age of the vines is 30 years. Clos du Marquis is the estate’s second line.
