The second wine at Las Cases is now called Le Petit Lion. The 2010 is a blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and the rest equal parts Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. An elegant, light to medium-bodied wine with hints of strawberry and black cherries, this is a pleasant, straightforward style to drink over the next 7-10 years. ||What I like about tasting at Las Cases is that Jean-Hubert Delon opens one bottle in my presence, and has another already decanted four hours in advance to compare. It is nearly unanimous on each visit that the decanted wine shows better, which probably gives you some insight into the aging potential of Las Cases. It is certainly one of Bordeaux’s longest-lived wines, and seems to have more and more of a character resembling Lafite Rothschild more than its nearby neighbor, Chateau Latour.

The fourth vintage of this Second Wine is a blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot, raised in 22% new oak. The nose is well defined though quite muted at first, unfurling nicely with aeration. The palate is defined by its silky smooth tannins that glide across the mouth to the point of being over-polished...but that would be churlish. Very delicious – no more, no less. Tasted March 2011.

The second wine of Las Cases shows mineral, violet and berry character. Full and silky, with a long finish. I like the balance. jamessuckling.com

Sappy, with lots of kirsch, violet and red currant notes. Very lively acidity drives the finish. Tightly wound for a second wine, with serious acidity. Tasted non-blind. James Molesworth, winespectator.com

Very healthy dark crimson. Broad and fragrant. Seems quite friendly on the nose immediately after the Potensac! Quite polished. Las Cases Lite, and all the more approachable for it. Though just a little lacking density and potential. jancisrobinson.com

This wine has juicy dark berry fruit with copious amounts of ripe tannins. The aromatics are lovely and the palate promises future pleasure but the tannins right now are too obtrusive. Don't approach for at least 5 years. This wine is made from young vines from Leoville Las Cases' vineyard of 3-15 years of age. asianpalate.com
