In total contrast to the preceding vintage, 1971 was a very small vintage and was better on the right bank, where there were some sensational wines made (Trotanoy, for example). The Leoville Las Cases is one of the better left bank wines and worth trying against the 1970.
This one remaining bottle is at mid-to-high shoulder level which is OK for its age.
Once part of Chateau Leoville before Louis XVI lost his head and ranked as a second growth in 1855, Leoville Las Cases has long been the best of the three Leovilles, with prices to match, and the best wine from the Saint Julien appellation.
Some of the 1970s wines weren’t so brilliant but it is generally very reliable and good older vintages are still good value.
The blend is around 65% cabernet sauvignon, 20% merlot, 13% cabernet franc, and a few percent petit verdot.
Apart from the Grand Vin, there are three other wines produced: Clos du Marquis, which is technically a chateau in its own right; Le Petit Lion de Marquis de Las Cases, which is the second wine of Leoville Las Cases; and La Petite Marquise, which is the second wnie of Clos du Marquis. All a little confusing.
