Chateau Leoville Las Cases is located on the edge of St. Julian and Pauillac, similar to the first-class Château Latour, so the wine quality and style are also quite similar. Although it has not been selected as a first-class winery, its outstanding wine quality is recognized as a "super second-class winery", and it is one of the top five first-class wineries in Bordeaux that has the most strength to challenge the tradition. It was the largest vineyard on the left bank of the Gironde. By 1750, the garden had become the most expensive vineyard in Saint Julien.
The surface soil of Clos Léoville Las Cases is mainly composed of Quaternary gravel, covered with sandy gravel and clay gravel subsoil. Affecting the growth of the vines and the composition of the grapes, regular and controlled water supply and poor nutrients are beneficial to Cabernet Sauvignons, Cabernet Franc and other varieties. The unparalleled terroir gives this winery a majestic personality. As its name suggests, its wine is like a wild lion, darker in color, bold and bold, and has the potential to be old.
The winemaking philosophy of the Jean-Hubert Delon family has influenced the direction of this winery. In addition to insisting on not using artificial fertilizers and organic farming, it also attaches great importance to the recycling of land. For example, the planting density of vineyards per hectare is not high, only 4000 liters per hectare is produced, and the quality of grapes is also very strict. , Only some grapes can be selected as the raw materials of top-brand red wine, so the output of top-brand red wine is not necessarily high. Finally, Dylan also believes that the most important thing for red wine is to be able to store it for a long time, so that each wine can completely release its unique flavor of fruity aroma and layering.
