Bordeaux 2016: Chateau Leoville Las Cases
12 June 2017

We have always admired the classical wines from Leoville Las Cases. The exceptional 60 hectares Clos Leoville Las Cases, which dominates the northern tip of St Julien and abuts Chateau Latour provides the mainstay for the grand vin. The Cabernets from this superb terroir produce some of the purest and most profound expressions of these noble varieties. Las Cases is a wine for purists. It is uncompromising, reserved and intense – there’s nothing superficial or blousy – this is a cerebral and masculine wine in the very best of traditions.

The proximity to Chateau Latour is clearly reflected in the wine. This is a high brow, aristocratic style that very much feels like a First Growth. In fact, if you want a wine for future generations, a true vin de garde, there is probably no finer contender than the magnificent 2016 Leoville Las Cases. We don’t quote Matthew Jukes very often, but his ‘out of body’ experience and 20++ score is worthy of inclusion in this report. Neal Martin was emphatic, and awarded the wine a brilliant 98-100 points - his equal top score of the vintage.
