Wine Advocate-Parker :
Las Cases's 2011 Le Petit Lion is a blend of 54% Merlot, 42.5% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. At 13.6%, it is slightly higher in alcohol than the grand vin because of the riper Merlot component. Its deep plum/purple color is accompanied by lovely berry and mocha fruit intertwined with a hint of coffee beans. With good fatness, it should drink nicely for a decade.
