61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc.

2nd wine of Château Léoville Las Cases.

James Suckling: 93-94/100
This is very fresh and crunchy with blackberries, dark cherries and hints of crushed stones. It’s medium-bodied with impressive acidity and fine, silky tannins. Shows depth and structure, too. Bright and vivid on the finish. Lightly chunky. Second wine of Leoville Las Cases. 61% cabernet sauvignon, 31% merlot and 8% cabernet franc.

Vinous: 91-93/100
The 2023 Le Petit Lion is a rich, exuberant wine. Ripe dark cherry/plum fruit, mocha, spice, new leather, licorice and chocolate are all amplified. There's less Merlot and more Cabernet than in most years, but in 2023, the typical blend would have likely been too forward and ripe. A range of savory graphite, floral and mineral tones linger on the nuanced finish. I expect this will drink well right out of the gate. Since 2022, Le Petit Lion has been a blend of Clos du Marquis and Las Cases.
