    Le Petit Lion 2016 (750ML)

    In Stock — Zachys NY
    92 Points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Le Petit Lion is composed of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc. Deep garnet-purple colored, it leaps from the glass with notions of warm blackcurrants, blackberry pie, redcurrant jelly and tilled soil with touches of hoisin, Sichuan pepper, unsmoked cigars, red roses and smoked meats. Medium to full-bodied, the palate explodes with vibrant red and black fruit preserves, with a wonderfully fine-grained frame and very long, lifted finish." 11/18

    "90-92 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: ""The 2016 Le Petit Lion is plush, open and seductive. It offers striking freshness, with plenty of distinctly red ? flavors and silky tannins to match its creamy, nuanced personality. The 2016 is not a big wine, but it is charming and, above all else, absolutely delicious, especially if enjoyed within the first 10-15 years of its life."" 04/17"
    Wine Enthusiast Notes
    "91-93 Points, Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast: ""Barrel Sample. Rich and packed with ripe tannins, this is definitely structured. At the same time, the fruit is so enticing. The combination makes for a wine that will be fruity, delicious and very drinkable."""
    Decanter Notes
    "91 Points, Jane Anson, Decanter: ""This is more of a Léoville Las Cases expression, while Clos de Marquis is more of a St-Julien expression. The blend is 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot, and 8% Cabernet Franc, aged in 30% new oak. Even here the Merlot is 50-60 years old, together with young vines up to 20 years old, with a yield of 40hl/ha and representing 35% of the production. This has a stunning cassis mid-palate with a menthol freshness on the finish. It really does deliver a lot of the poise and power of the grand vin, but should be able to begin drinking in five to eight years."" 4/17"
