Why Buy Me
The second wine of Château Léoville Las Cases, Le Petit Lion is vinified and aged in order to preserve the fresh ripe fruit flavour, but as a second wine it is more accessible and for earlier drinking
The high proportion of Merlot in this wine makes it more approachable. It is medium-bodied, soft and round with plenty of dark raspberry fruit. Drinking well now but could be kept a further five years. This was an exceptional vintage in Bordeaux.
