LE PETIT LEON 2019
The color is a dark garnet red and the nose is characterized by distinctive notes of red fruit mingled with toasted aromas, while the tannins are round and silky, supple and persistent.
It is a well-balanced, easy-drinking wine.
Traditional Medoc winegrowers, the Meyer family has been running the family winery for six generations. Pioneers of wine tourism, they opened their doors to tourists early on.
Producers Julien and Natalie continue the tradition of Merlot-dominance, egg white fining, 12-month aging in barrels and hand-harvesting of young and old grapes, while creating their own new additions to this famous Médoc Cru Bourgeois. He brings experience and a dynamic approach to winemaking.
