Tasting Note:

The grand vin of Leoville Las Cases comes from the wonderful terroir north of the town of St Julien, next to the Gironde and south of Chateau Latour. Produced from 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc cropped at 36.7 hl/ha, there is 7% press wine in the final blend. This like many of the outstanding wines from the Medoc this year is very reserved. There is no doubt that this is a spectacular, huge scaled Las Cases, but it requires work. One can get beyond the impenetrable bouquet, after aeration, there are hints of what will await the patient connoisseur. Sweet black fruits, redcurrants, cedar, graphite and griotte cherries. The palate is immense, dense, packed with cassis and mineral notes. This is a spectacular, brooding Las Cases, which is rather hidden, but given its awesome power and huge tannic texture will age effortlessly for 50+ years. A noble, aristocratic wine for future generations!
