Château Léoville las Cases Le Petit Lion 2016
Red wine with reddish brown edges. The Château Léoville las Cases Le Petit Lion exudes aromas of violets.A red fairly astringent.
We didn't pair it well, but the wine was good.
My friends loved Château Léoville las Cases Le Petit Lion.

Château Léoville las Cases Le Petit Lion 2015
I drank it with my brothers and a friend of mine.
A Cabernet Sauvignon with a nice colour. Smells like chocolate. Not a singularity to highlight, the wine was fine.
Suitable for a menu as varied as we had.

Attractive and intense colour. The outstanding flavour is of red roses, without any doubt..This 2014 is quite like the previous vintage.
Highly recommend to drink it with friends at a barbecue.
Drinking it with friends is always a pleasure.

I accompanied the 2013 with steamed vegetables. The Le Petit Lion du Marquis de las Cases is just so good.
It has a dense colour. Pretty aromas of nuts. Very dense.
