The winery is located in the municipality of Saint-Julien in the Médoc (Haut-Médoc, Bordeaux). The name "Grand Vin de Léoville du Marquis de Las Cases" appears on the label, but there is no mention of a château. Las Cases is derived from Marquis de Las Cases Beauvoir, the owner of a Château Léoville. The estate remained in family ownership until 1840, when it was divided into three parts. This resulted in the two estates Château Léoville-Barton and Château Léoville-Poyferré. Château Léoville-Las-Cases came into the possession of the Delon family (descendants of the Léoville family), who also owned Château Potensac. The progenitor was Théophile Skawinski, who managed the estate until 1930.
