Wine Spectator

(09-1996) A fabulous wine; one of the first great Las Cases. Full-bodied and rich, with the tannins extremely well integrated into an impressive background of fruit. Give it time.

(03-2022) My favorite vintage from this château to drink today is the 1985 Léoville Las Cases. Wafting from the glass with an expressive bouquet of red berries, blackcurrants, pencil shavings, paraffin wax and loamy soil, it's deep, full-bodied and textural, with unusual concentration for the vintage, supple tannins, succulent acids and a long, expansive finish. More giving than the brooding 1986, and more complex than the 1982, the 1985 is in its prime today.v

(12-2013) A very aromatic nose. Very rich. Blackcurrant and undergrowth. The mouth is very classic, very Bordeaux : precise, strict but also composed of multiple shades. Nice potential.

(02-2020) One of the stars of the vintage, this is drinking perfectly today. Delivering its wealth of ripe, juicy, crisp, fresh red fruits in its stern, regal, refined, full-bodied character, 30 minutes in the decanter is all this beauty needs to start singing.

(01-2015) This mature Las Cases offers a gorgeous nose of aged tobacco, fresh forest mushrooms and dried violets. The palate is complex and very intense with firm, velvety tannins. A beautiful wine in its optimal maturity window with a persistent, long finish.

(01-2024) Very much into the tertiary notes, layered with mushroom, leather and black tea, and mint. long finish. The fruit is not as fresh as the last bottle from almost 5 years ago. Still love it.

(01-2004) Deep garnet. Seamless ripe nose: pencil-lead, blackberry and spice. Superb intengration, exquisite balance. Elegant Léoville-Las-Cases. More feminine and expressive. Supple, fleshy finish. The most instantly satisfying Las Cases of the 80's. Beautiful wine.

(03-2001) Appearance impressively deep and rich; a many-layered bouquet -there seemed to be so many things going on - tea, autumnal leaves, black treacle - and still evolving; sweet, with substantial Latour-like character and weight.

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.
