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."
86-89 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2011
(75% cabernet sauvignon, 17% merlot and 8% cabernet franc; 66 IPT; 37% new oak; 13.6% alcohol) Bright, deep red. Subtle aromas of red berries, cherry, flowers and minerals. A ripe, sweet midweight with good tension to its supple red fruit, licorice and fresh herb flavors. Finishes with moderate length and a refined quality; currently a little subdued, and although the tannins are smooth, I get a hint of green at the back.
