LE PETIT LION DU MARQUIS DE LAS CASES Saint-Julien 2015
Wine Region: Bordeaux - France Grape: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon
Tasting notes: "Dominated by Merlot, this is an opulent wine. Even if its tannins are very present, the swathes of ripe blackberry fruits dominate in this rich wine. It has the great fruit of the year, generous and backed by acidity." - Wine Enthousiast
About the winery: One of the oldest Medoc estates, Domaine de Leoville, belonged to some of the wealthiest and most influential noble French families before it was acquired by the Las Cases family. Leoville Las Cases has now been managed by the same family since the late 19th century and is today represented by Jean-Hubert Delon, sole owner of the Chateau and proprietor of Chateau Potensac in the Medoc and Chateau Nenin in Pomerol.
