The grapes developed in radiant, dry weather conditions. Light showers appeared in mid-September to re-boost the ripening process on the terroirs offering less water retention, thus perfecting the maturation of the tannins. The absolutely perfect weather conditions during harvest time allowed us to pick grapes boasting remarkable quality.

This has a plush edge of warm tar and ganache that slowly melds into the core of steeped plum and cassis flavors as they move through, picking up smoldering charcoal and graphite notes along the way. A very grounded wine that will age nicely. Best from 2023 through 2038.

93-95. Barrel Sample. From a vineyard that is now separate from but owned by Léoville las-Cases, this wine is dense, intense and with the finest tannins. Great acidity and black fruits are supported by a serious, complex structure. A wine for long-term aging.
