CHATEAU LÉOVILLE LAS CASES, 2021

PRIMEURS - LIVRAISON 2024

" L'un des vins du millésime, le Léoville Las Cases 2021 rappelle un hypothétique mélange des 1999 et 1996, mais en mieux. Il offre des arômes complexes et naissants de cassis, de prunes et de baies noires mêlés à un sol argileux, de terre glaise, d'enveloppe de cigare et d'épices exotiques, il est corsé, stratifié et multidimensionnel avec une superbe amplitude et une concentration, des tanins veloutés, une acidité vive et une finale longue et pénétrante. Alliant classicisme et charme, il illustre comment un grand terroir, une agronomie exigeante et la vinification méticuleuse peuvent donner de grands résultats, même dans un millésime moins propice. " - Wine Advocate

Histoire et anecdotes

Until the 19th century, the Leoville estate, in Saint-Julien appellation (Medoc), was one of the largest crus. It was divided in three domains afterwards: Château Léoville Las Cases, Château Léoville Barton, Château Léoville Poyferré.Château Léoville Las Cases is made up of the three-fifths of the original estate and is the Las Cases family’s estate. Nowadays, Léoville Las Cases has been managed by the same family since the end of the 19th century. It is represented now by the single owner of the Château, Jean-Hubert Delon.
