Join Decanter’s Château Léoville Las Cases Masterclass in New York

This masterclass will feature the sensational wines of one of Bordeaux’s most lauded ‘Super Seconds’.

We are thrilled to be hosting a masterclass featuring the wines of Bordeaux ‘Super Second’ Château Léoville Las Cases, at the Decanter Fine Wine Encounter NYC on Saturday 10 June. The wines of the esteemed St-Julien estate are noted for their elegance, power, charm – and their longevity.

During this tasting, export director Antoine Gimbert will lead guests through eight vintages of the château’s two top estate wines, the Grand Vin and Clos du Marquis, going all the way back to 1988 and as recent as 2019. Under Gimbert’s expert guidance, tasters will come to understand the similarities and differences between these two wines, and how their terroirs give them their unique personalities.

Léoville-Las Cases is one of the oldest classified growths in the Médoc, tracing its roots back to the 17th century, and has been managed by the same family since the late 19th century. Listed as a Second Growth in Bordeaux’s classification of 1855, Las Cases regularly punches above its weight and is considered an elite among the ‘Super Seconds,’ with a reputation for wines that are powerful and age-worthy.

With Gimbert’s guidance, tasters will have the opportunity to discover how eight exceptional and age-worthy wines have evolve and developed, and how they can be enjoyed all along the continuum, from relative youth to full maturity.
