Le Petit Lion du Marquis de Las Cases 2010 (Second Wine of Château Léoville-Las Cases)
It is a blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot. Drink now - 2030.
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.
