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."

Brilliant dark red-ruby. Captivating aromas of raspberry, blackcurrant, Asian spices and graphite. Brisk and juicy in the mouth, showing excellent cut to its flavors of red berries, pepper, sweet spices and minerals. Finishes with a firm tannic spine and lingering notes of dark cherry and violet. Backward but very promising. As usual, owner Jean-Hubert Delon has come up with one of the top ten wines of the vintage. This 2011 lacks only the incredible silkiness of tannins of LLC's best vintages; otherwise it's an absolute gem.
