Leoville Las Cases 1992

Chateau Leoville Las Cases

25 years

This tasting consisted of each of the varietal components of Las Cases, followed by the final blend for Leoville-Las Cases. The final wine is measurably better than any of its components. The soft Merlot exhibits a smoky, vegetal note, medium body, and a round, straightforward finish. The Cabernet Franc displays aromatic complexity, elegance, and good ripeness, as well as a tart style. The medium-bodied, closed, structured, firm Cabernet Sauvignon reveals bitterness and hardness in the finish. Although good, it is not special. The opaque-colored Petit Verdot possesses a high tannin level, more concentration and intensity than the Cabernet Sauvignon, and an astringent finish. ** The 1992 Leoville-Las Cases is one of the stars of what is overall a diluted vintage. Medium-bodied, with attractive aromatics (red and black fruits, minerals, and spicy oak), it is a forward, precocious Las Cases possessing grip and tannin. It can be drunk or cellared for 15+ years.

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.
