Chateau Leoville Las Cases Le Petit Lion 2009
'If a single wine estate in Bordeaux today were to be promoted to the rank of First Growth, Léoville las Cases would be the choice of most claret connoisseurs. The 98 hectare estate is in the appellation of Saint-Julien on the border of Pauillac and abuts some of the best vineyards of its lofty neighbor Château Latour. Perhaps this is why the structured and racy wines of Las Cases so often resemble those of Latour.' James Suckling, Wine Spectator

Wine SpectatorCurrants on toasted bread character on the nose and palate. Medium- to full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a medium finish. Balanced and attractive. This is the new name for the second wine.
Wine EnthusiastBarrel sample. The first release of a wine from young vines. It is charming, juicy and fresh, the fruit bright and lively.
