2009 was a massively successful year across the board for Left Bank Bordeaux reds, and was truly exceptional in the vineyards of Chateau Leoville Las Cases. The final blend was 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and 9% Cabernet Franc to form a succulent and spicy wine which will continue to spread its wings over the next decade.
The large estate of Chateau Leoville-Las Cases was divided during the French Revolution to give birth to Chateau Leoville Barton, and again in 1840 creating Chateau Leoville-Poyferre. Keeping the original name, Chateau Leoville-Las Cases remains the largest of the Leoville chateaux.
The vineyard encompasses 98 hectares with 66% of vines representing Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. Chateau Leoville was one of the first Bordeaux wine estates to produce a second wine ‘Le Petit Lion’ starting from the 2007 vintage to preserve the quality of the Grand Vin.
