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."
90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2011
Good dark red. Bitter cherry, fresh bay, sage and coffee on the nose, with a floral element emerging in the glass. Supple and nicely concentrated, with attractive mid-palate sweetness and a seamless texture for the year. This rather silky Saint-Julien finishes with good floral lift.
