About Chateau Leoville Las Cases
At Chateau Leoville Las Cases, Manager Jean Hubert Delon's reputation--or better yet, notoriety--precedes him. A formidable man who governs the vines with an iron fist, Delon has struck fear into the heart of many an unassuming wine critic. His intensity has also driven the wines here to the doorstep of the First Growths, a prime reason why Las Cases is the foremost "Super Second."
89-91 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 1998
Ruby-red. Sweet aromas of dark berries, shoe polish and flowers; has a distinctly eau de vie-like sappy quality. Inky dark berry fruit is framed, and currently kept under wraps, by firm acidity. Structured and intensely flavored, with lingering fruit outlasting the ripe, suave tannins. An extraordinarily impressive second wine.
