Château Léoville Las Cases
Château Léoville Las Cases is the most legendary wine of Saint-Julien: on a quality par with the Médoc's first growths. It's a prime example of a Bordeaux 'super-second' - a second growth operating at a first growth level – and many consider that it should be reclassified as such.
Léoville Las Cases is also one of the largest, oldest and most picturesque of the Médoc's classified Bordeaux growths, and its gravel soils were once part of a larger Léoville estate (as were Châteaux Léoville Barton and Poyferré), which dominated Saint-Julien in the 17th-18th centuries. Léoville Las Cases' second wine, Clos du Marquis, is one of the Médoc's finest second wines.
