Until the Revolution, the domain of Leoville, very large, was one of the oldest wines of the Medoc.
It was therefore divided into three parts during the Revolution, the Leoville las Cases domain remains the most important of the 3 in size.
In the Saint-Julien appellation, it was already ranked second grand cru in 1855, then continued over the vintages to keep its place in the tops of the rankings.
Today, Jean-Hubert Delon manages the area, he also owns Châteaux Potensac and Nénin (Pomerol).
This is an absolutely exemplary property in Bordeaux : Leoville Las Cases sets with metronomic regularity, combining the sharp righteousness of Cabernet Sauvignon, the Cabernet Franc shine and the softness of Merlot.
There is no small vintages at Leoville Las Cases, and it is the same for his second wine Clos du Marquis.
