Jancis Robinson November - 2021

Very correct and dry but actually much sweeter and more winning than most wines made in the 1970s at this estate. Firmer and drier than the Ch Latour 1975 served alongside it. Strong blackcurrant flavours. Dry but fine and very Las Cases. A really good wine.

Dark red color. Intense. Brown and red highlights are still very well blended. Brilliant. Good intensity. Clean nose. Intense. Fine. Nuances of ripe fruit, caramel, spice and cedar. Hint of ink. On agitation, clean and intense. Animal, broad. Quite fatty. Clean, supple, broad attack. Development on a voluminous structure, with power contained by an excellent fine tactile contact. Slow evolution on present, fruity and fat tannins that evolve slightly austere towards a slightly peppery finish, rich in aromas, long and tasty. A concentrated, fine wine that's beginning to open up. A successful 75 in which I don't seem to find the tight texture of younger vintages.

Robert PARKER - The Wine Advocate
This is one of the great successes of the vintage. However, those with modern day tastes for soft, easy-going, supple wines may not enjoy the 1975 Leoville Las-Cases. Why? It is a tannic, backward, old style wine cut from the mold of such vintages as 1948 and 1928. The color is a dark rubygarnet with a hint of amber at the edge. The nose offers up distinctive mineral, lead pencil, sweet, blackcurrant scents with flinty overtones. Full-bodied, thick, and concentrated, as well as atypically muscular and powerful, this should prove to be one of the longest-lived wines of the vintage. There are sensational levels of richness and intensity. While the vintage's tough tannin level ensures another 20-35 years of longevity, the wine may dry out by that time. I thought this wine would be at its peak by the mid-nineties, but it still needs another 5-8 years of cellaring. It is a very impressive, albeit backward and hard wine.

Château Leoville Las Cases
Château Leoville Las Cases

The Château Léoville Las Cases is a french estate located in Saint Julien Beychevelle in Gironde. It is a second classified growth in Médoc classification of 1855. 

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.
