2020 Le Petit Lion du Marquis de Las Cases  (St. Julien) 92

Elegant, refined and fresh, the wine is packed with tobacco leaf, cherry, cedar and spice. Medium-bodied and lifted, with gorgeous notes of kirsch, cassis and smoky cherries on the palate and in the finish, this baby Leoville Las Cases is going to be just great with only a year or two of age. The wine blends 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc. 91-93 Pts

Boysenberry, black pit fruit, tobacco and earthy nuances create the nose.

2018 Le Petit Lion du Marquis de Las Cases  (St. Julien) 91

Here you find a family resemblance to the Grand Vin. Lighter, closer to ready to drink and softer for sure, but this Baby Las Cases is perfect for restaurants and early drinking with its black raspberry and currant profile, coupled with round tannins, a fruit filled, supple textured finish and hints of tobacco. Enjoy this over the next decade or more while waiting for the Grand Vin to develop. The wine is a blend of 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and 13% Cabernet Franc, 14.5% ABV. 91 Points

The lift and zest is felt right away on the palate. It is hard to believe this is a second wine with this much fruit, tension and crunch in the fruit. The finish is on the bright, crisp, red berry side. Enjoy this over the next decade or more while waiting for the Grand Vin to develop. The wine is a blend of 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and 13% Cabernet Franc. 90-92 Pts

2016 Le Petit Lion du Marquis de Las Cases  (St. Julien) 91

Tobacco, cassis, spice and floral characteristics are found in the nose. On the palate, the wine serves up a juicy, sweet, fresh, slightly bright red berry palate with a hint of spice in the end note. Give this a few years and enjoy it over the next 10-15 years after that. 91 Points
