"Blueberries and minerals on the nose, with hints of flowers. Full body, with firm and chewy tannins and a fresh finish. A little linear in structure, but very fine. Second wine of Leoville Las Cases."

Product Description:

"In recent years, several vineyard plots in the Clos LÉOVILLE LAS CASES were uprooted and replanted, and these are now coming into production. To preserve the quality level of the Grand Vin, Château LÉOVILLE LAS CASES therefore decided it would create a second wine, starting with the 2007 vintage.

The Petit Lion shares the philosophy of its two elder siblings; it is vinified and aged in order to preserve its fresh, ripe fruit flavour throughout its life. However, it is designed as a second wine, and is therefore made to be more accessible and for earlier drinking, with a significant proportion of Merlot used in the blend.
