Chateau Leoville Las Cases is one of the largest and oldest classified growths in the Medoc region of France. The fruit is all harvested by hand. The fermentation vessels include a fascinating mix of wooden, cement and stainless steel vats. When it is finished in the vessels the wine is pumped to the barrel cellar. Here it is transferred into oak barrique, between 50% and 100% new for the grand vin, depending on the vintage.
