Château Léoville Las Cases comprises two properties with distinct terroir characteristics and therefore produces two first wines with different tastes, despite an obvious filiation. The Grand Vin de Las Cases is for the most part made from the exceptional terroirs of the former Domaine de Léoville. These terroirs are mainly located in the Clos Léoville Las Cases, at the exit of the Bourg de Saint-Julien, in the direction of Pauillac. The complex and accomplished expression of the Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc gives the Grand Vin de Léoville du Marquis de las Cases its own unique character, which has long been universally recognised.
Thanks to a very hot spring the beginning of the cycle was quick and very early then the colder weather of July slowed the growth down considerably. The vintage continued with a cool and rainy month of August. A welcome change in the weather came with the month of September, ideally hot and dry, allowing the grapes to finish the ripening process in excellent conditions.
