Château Léoville-Las Cases
Château Léoville-Las Cases is a winery in the Saint-Julien appellation. The wine was classified as one of fifteen Deuxièmes Crus (Second Growths) in the original Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855.
The château was one of the first estates in Bordeaux to introduce a second label, Clos du Marquis, which started production since 1902.
Léoville-Las Cases was once part of a much larger estate, the Léoville estate, until the time of the French Revolution, when a portion of this estate was separated into what is today Château Léoville-Barton. In 1840, the estate was again divided and eventually what has become of Château Léoville-Poyferré nowadays was split off.
The average annual production is 15,000 to 17,000 cases for the grand vin, and 21,000 to 23,000 cases for the second wine, Clos du Marquis.
