The Story

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, from the 2007 vintage

The Petit Lion shares the philosophy of its two elder siblings; it is vinifi ed and aged in order to preserve its fresh, ripe fruit fl avour 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 signifi cant proportion of Merlot used in the blend.

Tasted in April 2016.  Very concentrated  on the palate, tight and dense, velvety texture, long aftertaste. Fine second wine.
