Ch Léoville Las Cases, La Petite Marquise 2021 St-Julien

16

55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc. 34% press wine. Cask sample.
Aromatic with red- and dark-fruit notes and a hint of chocolate. A certain density and structure thanks to the volume of press wine, the tannins silky and an absence of any astringency. Difficult to know how this will age given the quantity of press wine but the analytical profile (acidity, pH, IPT) is similar to that of stablemate Potensac, which usually has a propensity to age.
