The hot and sunny weather of April set off a rapid bud- burst. Then all the key stages proceeded in ideal conditions: quick flowering, very even colour change for each of the grape varieties. An incredibly beautiful weather stayed with us during all the growth cycle. We observed a perfect hydric stress early July, very beneficial for the synthesis of the polyphenol precursors. The ripening process continued through a mild and quite dry month of September, ensuring the grapes maintained a great concentration and a wonderful aromatic freshness.

Rich, ripe, and elegant, this wine comes from a separate parcel of Léoville las Cases that is treated as a distinct wine. With fine, dusty tannins and juicy acidity, it offers both richness and black currants from the Cabernet Sauvignon. It needs to age and should be ready to drink from 2025.

Rich and dense, with a fresh beam of mesquite, savory and tea streaking through the red and black currant preserve flavors. Shows good brambly energy through the finish, revealing a tug of licorice snap at the end. Best from 2020 through 2035. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
