Le Petit Lion Du Marquis De Las Cases Saint-Julien 2012

It is slightly higher in alcohol than the grand vin because of the riper Merlot component. Its deep plum/purple color is accompanied by lovely berry and mocha fruit intertwined with a hint of coffee beans. With good fatness, it should drink nicely for a decade.
