(1995 Vintage) The Grand Vin is the product of exceptional terroirs from the former Léoville estate. These terroirs are located mainly in the Clos Léoville Las Cases, which you pass as you leave Saint- Julien village for Pauillac. They extend over nearly 60ha producing Cabernet Sauvignons and Cabernet Francs with a complex, polished expression and characteristics which are totally unique to the Grand Vin of Léoville du Marquis de Las Cases and have been widely recognized for years.
tried at Rob/Nat Xmas dinner 2010; probably biggest disappointment of the night. 22 yrs old. nose was all bell pepper/no fruit, slightly more enjoyable on the palate but still more earthy than fruit. RP 92
Drank 2002 impressive. typical of the region.
