Château Léoville Las Cases wine
Château Léoville Las Cases is a Deuxième (second) Grand Cru that is widely considered the equal of the Médoc's First Grand Crus. Domaine de Léoville, one of the oldest properties in the Médoc, passed through the hands of some of France's most noble and influential dynasties, finally coming to the De Las Cases family. In 1900 Théophile Skawinski acquired a share in the property and took over the reins. Since the late 19th century the château has been run by the same family, represented today by Jean-Hubert Delon, sole proprietor of Château Léoville Las Cases, Château Potensac (Médoc), and Château Nénin (Pomerol). 

The walled vineyard of Château Léoville Las Cases boasts a highly complex terroir. The soil is composed primarily of Quaternary gravel on a gravel-sand and gravel-clay subsoil with relatively deep, compact clay that occasionally appears at the surface. The proximity of the Gironde is responsible for the incredible diversity of soil types, which were formed over many geological periods by successive superimpositions. The river also creates a very specific microclimate that helps the grapes to ripen very early and protects the vines from frost. This rainbow of geological combinations influences the development of the vine and the makeup of the fruit through a regular but limited water supply and low nutritional content. These conditions bring the Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc to their ultimate expression year in and year out. 

This incomparable terroir gives a great wine with an entirely unique personality. In addition to its excellence, it is the great regularity of Château Léoville Las Cases that has earned it a superlative reputation among oenophiles.
