    Winemaker's Notes:

    Chateau Leoville Las Cases is one of the largest and oldest classified growths in the Medoc region of France. The fruit is harvested by hand. The fermentation vessels include a fascinating mix of wooden, cement and stainless steel vats. When finished 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.

    Critical Acclaim:

    For the year, this is a big wine, a success. New wood flavors and tannins blend well with the weight of fruit, depth of flavor and concentration. The wine has freshness to give with the structure, solid and intense. Certainly for aging—five years and more.

    Good full ruby. Very pure aromas of blackberry, black cherry, violet and licorice. A sweet, juicy midweight with supple, attractive fruit and lovely inner-mouth floral character. Serious and firmly structured in the style of Las Cases but harmonious from the start and not at all forbidding. Finishes with sweet tannins and very good length. Range: 90-93

    Tasted blind at the 2007 Bordeaux horizontal in Southwold. Jean-Hubert Delon’s wine bides its time and is very reticent and primal on the nose: blackberry, raspberry coulis, a touch of leather and cedar. It opens beautifully after five minutes. The palate is medium-bodied with a peppery entry, nicely balanced with blackberry, white pepper, leather and cedar with good persistency towards the sous-bois-tinged finish. Patently great breeding here...

    Offers mineral and berry aromas, with hints of dried fruits. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a long finish. Racy and refined. Very beautiful and polished. Best after 2012. 15,000 cases made.
