Tasting Note:

Leoville Las Cases hails almost entirely from the grand 60 hectare clos which runs from the northern tip of St Julien village to the vineyards of Chateau Latour. This is possibly one of the finest terroirs for Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc in the Medoc. The 2014 is a spectacular blend of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot and 11% Cabernet Franc cropped at 33 hl/ha. The bouquet is laced with complex minerals and dark, brooding cassis fruit and just a hint of florality too. This has a serious and impressive attack of cool dark berry fruit - there is real power and concentration here and a multidimensional quality that is not present in many 2014s at this early stage. Cranberries and redcurrant jam notes intersperse the dark mass of black fruit. There is an imposing tannic structure as one would expect from a great Las Cases; be in no doubt, this is definitely built to last. It must rank as one of the most serious and impressive wines of the Medoc - classically styled and more masculine and muscular than most of its peers. A striking and imposing wine.
