The 1987 is ruby-colored, with a moderately intense bouquet of cassis and spicy new oak. With no trace of under-ripeness, or any indication of dilution or advanced age, this rich, medium-bodied wine reveals good fruit and a soft finish. Moreover, it is faithful to the Leoville-Las-Cases style. One of the vintage's best! Anticipated maturity: Now-2000. Last tasted, 1/93. *** The 1987 is deep ruby-colored, with a moderately intense bouquet of cassis and spicy new oak. With no trace of underripeness, or any indication of dilution, this is a rich, medium- to full-bodied wine that is probably better than the chateau's 1981, and every bit as good as their excellent 1976. One of the vintage's best! Anticipated maturity: Now-2000. Last tasted 4/91.

Chateau Leoville Las Cases

Chateau Leoville Las Cases is a famed wine producer from the Saint Julien appellation based in Bordeaux, France. The primary red fine wine produced by this estate is classified as a Second Growth, according to the Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855.

Chateau Leoville Las Cases was once a subdivision of a much larger plot, along with Leoville Barton and Leoville Poyferre, until 1840 when the estate was once again divided to give Chateau Leoville Las Cases true independence.

The vineyards of Leoville las Cases span just under 100 hectares, with a grape selection of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot. The estate was one of the first to introduce a second wine, labeled Clos du Marquis, however that is officially a separate wine. The actual second label is in production since 2007, referred to as Le Petit Lion de Marquis de Las Cases.
