Marks and reviews
Château Léoville Las Cases is one of the most emblematic estates in the prestigious Saint-Julien appellation on the Left Bank of the Bordeaux region, with vintage after vintage achieving the highest levels of excellence and elegance.
Château Léoville Las Cases 2022 is a Saint-Julien wine from a vineyard planted within the famous Clos de Léoville, the complexity of which forms a veritable mosaic of terroirs. Situated close to the Gironde, the vineyard benefits from the river's role as a thermal regulator, guaranteeing mild temperatures and providing a barrier against frost. Combined with the presence of gravelly soils derived from the Günz, resting on subsoils of a gravelly-sandy nature with more or less deep clay, the terroir of Château Léoville Las Cases combines all the conditions needed to produce vintages with legendary allure.
The vines budded early following a mild winter. A warm spring with little rain gave way to a scorching summer. However, rainfall from late May to late June prevented water stress. The vintage's climatic conditions were conducive to producing very ripe grapes. Harvesting within each plot and several passes through the vineyard enabled the full ripeness of each zone to be reached.
Château Léoville Las Cases 2022 is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (83.5%), Cabernet Franc (10.5%) and Merlot (6%).
