(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.

(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.

(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.

(02-2010) Tasted blind at Harry Gill’s annual lunch. Always on the of finest Las-Cases of the 1980s, this bottle convinces with a complex, tightly-wound nose of blackberry, cedar, dried herbs, sous-bois and cigar box. The palate is full-bodied with firm, sinewy tannins, compact at first but fanning out wonderful towards a supple, lithe finish tinged with iodine. Marvellous. Drink now-2030. Tasted February 2010.

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.
