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."

Expert Reviews

92-94 Points | International Wine Cellar , April 2012

(76% cabernet sauvignon and 12% each merlot and 12% cabernet franc; 26 hectoliters per hectare): Good deep red.  Outstanding verve to the aromas of raspberry, white pepper, violet, rose petal and sweet spices; today the cabernet franc component is very apparent.  At once velvety and racy on the palate, with great energy and class to the red fruit, floral and mineral flavors.  An electric wine that jolts the palate, and yet the exceptionally silky finish features creamy-sweet mouth-saturating tannins.  If the 2007 was more Saint-Julien in style and the 2008 more like Pauillac, the subtly complex 2011 is very much Léoville.  I'm not sure Jean-Hubert Delon could make a bad Léoville-Las-Cases even if he tried to.  This should turn out to be one of the top five wines of the vintage.
