Jean-Marc Quarin
(02-2009) Taste not decanted. This wine is a nice surprise. It presents an evolved color and a bouquet on the nose, with a note of cedar, fruit. Quite complex notes. Silky, subtle, aromatic palate, with a distinguished touch. The wine has a superb balance. It ends delicious and long.

Tom Cannavan (01-2004) A beautiful svelte nose : jammy cherry toasty fruit. Still much too closed but with masses of powerful blackcherry. Sweet & pure. Well-integrated tannins. Needs another year or two. Tasted twice.

Leoville Las Cases
Jean-Hubert Delon is not lacking in passion nor discipline. The vintages who marched during the past quarter century testify for him. In the Saint-Julien appellation, whether the wines are from in important vintage or a less significant one, they are without a doubt amongst the best. A property absolutely exemplary in the Bordeaux region. The largest of the three Léoville is certainly the greatest in quality and, in the opinion of many, it should be among the first growths. Michel Delon, the "Lord" as he was known, is largely responsible for this recognition. Since 1976, when he succeeded his father, he worked to reconstruct the drainage of land, to modernize and expand the winery, monitor the performance of its vines. He had this deep attachment to land and work values. His son Jean-Hubert took over in 2000, following his disparition.Las Cases is a  typical Saint-Julien of rare nobility of expression and has a breathtaking structure.
