(03-2001) Wonderfully deep, rich but mature; restrained but harmonious; a powerful, fleshy wine, tannins both silky and swingeing

(08-2018) The nose of this wine had a very light whiff of TCA but not enough to distract from what is clearly a monumental wine, enlivened by the richness of the vintage. So spicy and positively throbbing with life and potential. So long!

(06-2015) A wine at its perfect peak with generosity, depth, velvety texture and long finish. Cedar box, cassis and violets on the palate with flavors that linger for over 30 seconds in the finish. Decanted for an hour, this Las Cases is a tribute to the terroir, skill and the wonderful vintage that came together beautifully in this vintage.

(06-2009) As one might expect, this is a brilliant wine, but it remains shockingly young, even for the fast evolving 1990s. Its deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by a classic, nearly restrained set of aromatics that includes notions of sweet black cherries, black currants, lead pencil, and wet stones. In the mouth, it is full-bodied, and while technically low in acidity, there is a freshness, delineation, and classicism in this full-throttle, rich, concentrated, impeccable 1990. While still youthful, it is easy to appreciate despite its substantial tannins. It is not quite as backward as the 1990 Lafite Rothschild or 1990 Latour. Anticipated maturity: now-2035.v

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.
