Bordeaux 2017 - Leoville Las Cases
12 June 2018

It’s time to get contentious and wear our hearts on our sleeves... You can forget analysis and talk of points or comparisons with other vintages, this mailer is emotive and may be a touch controversial. We adore Leoville Las Cases. Hubert Delon’s flagship chateau is the epitome of great Left Bank Bordeaux. In our opinion this vineyard at the northern tip of St Julien is unsurpassed. It neighbours a notable First Growth, but hand on hearts, we prefer Las Cases. It is such an exquisite expression of this extraordinary terroir – the wines are a purists’ delight; they feel for want of a better word, ‘proper’. They have grace and charm and will age effortlessly. The 2017 is yet another outstanding effort that is clearly of First Growth quality at less than half the price. Discerning drinkers and collectors should take note… “The 2017 Léoville Las Cases is remarkably elegant and polished for this typically brutish Saint-Julien. Persistence more than power is the key element that distinguishes the 2017 from most other vintages and most other Saint-Juliens as well. The classic Las Cases flavor profile is very much in evidence, but in a wine that is silky, nuanced and exceptionally polished. In 2017, Las Cases is truly magical, and one of the most complete wines of the Left Bank. In a word: sublime. Don't miss it. Tasted two times. 94-97/100” - Antonio Galloni, vinous.com    Read More
