Château Léoville Las Cases 1979

2nd largest growth of Médoc in 1855 The area is bounded to the north by Château Latour and south by the village of Saint-Julien. The estuary of the Gironde, less than two kilometers, helps to soften the climate by reducing temperature amplitudes The field is in the form of four plots, the most important is surrounded by a low wall as a closed. The grape variety is traditional on this gravelly soil but Castle administrator, Michel Delon, attaches real importance to the Cabernet Franc for its finesse, and Petit Verdot, which brings the sugar and color. The wine produced in this area is probably the largest of the appellation and one of the very best of Bordeaux. In an unusual dark blue dress, the bouquet reveals itself slowly to provide a fruit rich cassis and blackberry and smoky oak aromas and Havana. In the mouth we find this same feeling of sophistication perfectly controlled with spicy, mineral and menthol The vineyard covers 97ha.
Grape: Cabernet Sauvignon 65%, Merlot 19%, Cabernet Franc 13%, 3% Petit Verdot. Density: 8500 plants / ha Production: 540 000 bottles Soil and subsoil: Garonne gravel fermentation time: 15 to 20 days
Ageing: 60 to 90% new barrels for 18 months Average age of vines: 30 years Second wine "Clos du Marquis."

It was an excellent accompanist for the main course. I drank this 2015 with my co-workers.
Dark red colour . You can really feel the vanilla smell. Perfect balance of acidity.

Chateau Leoville las Casses 2015
It's always good to share wine, but this one's special.
It showed a lighter colour than expected. Aromas of oak. Hints of toast on the palate.
We drank it solo, no pairing needed.
