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."
87-89 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2008
(13.3% alcohol; a blend of 58% cabernet sauvignon, 35% merlot, 5% cabernet franc and 2% petit verdot) Good medium ruby. Blackberry, black cherry, licorice and camphor on the nose. Suave on entry, then a bit strict in the middle for a 2007, with real firmness to its black fruit and violet flavors. A moderately dense wine with a medicinal reserve. Finishes with firm, building tannins.
