Château Léoville Las Cases

Château Léoville Las Cases

Domaine de Leoville is one of the oldest and largest properties in Medoc and a leader in St.Julien. Its 97 hectares are on gravelly clay soil, the largest plot is surrounded by a stone wall and stretches between the village of St.Julien and Château Latour. The wine is dominated by the Cabernet Sauvignon variety (65%), which matures in 80% new oak for 18 months. Léoville Las Cases makes the most exotic aromatic wine in all of Médoc. This is largely due to the lower fermentation temperatures, which allow the wine to retain the youthful richness of its aroma. According to the classification, Léoville Las Cases is 2ème Cru Classé, but the wine it makes has the quality of 1er Cru Classé.

Bordeaux

Bordeaux

Bordeaux is perhaps the most famous wine region in France. It stretches 130 kilometers inland from the Atlantic coast. In 2018, 111,000 hectares of vineyards were registered, a figure that remains largely constant over the previous decade. The main varieties grown here are Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc and they are used to make different wines, each producer having its own blend and proportions of mixing the varieties. Here are produced some of the most famous, most expensive and long-lasting wines in the world - the well-known subregions Medoc, Graves, St. Emilion, Pomerol and many others. Bordeaux is divided by the Gironde River on the left and right banks. Characteristic of the left bank (Medoc, Haut Medoc, Graves) is the more serious presence of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend of wine, while on the right bank (St. Emillion, Pomerol) merlot predominates. In addition to red wines, Bordeaux is famous for the production of white, mainly a blend between Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, with the Sauternes subregion and the leading Chateau d’Yquem, famous for its complex and multi-layered, aromatic and sweet botrytized dessert wine.

Merlot

Merlot

Southwest of France is Merlot’s birthplace - the regions of Saint-Émilion and Pomerol. Merlot is nowadays widely planted across the world much like Cabernet Sauvignon because it is an early maturing grape variety and because of its ability to ripen fully even in slightly cooler climates. Smooth, velvety, soft and rounded - an “easy drinking" wine with tender tannic structure - these are the common descriptions of Merlot wines.
