95Jeb Dunnuck

Great notes of ripe black cherries, blackcurrants, spring flowers, and graphite all emerge from this beauty, which is going to be one for the ages...

94The Wine Advocate

...notes of crushed blackcurrants and black cherries with touches of warm plums, pencil shavings, earth and new leather with a waft of yeast extract. Medium-bodied with a rock-solid frame of grainy tannins, it has bold fruit matched by freshness, finishing long and mineral laced.

94Vinous / IWC

...Inky, deep and explosive, with superb depth and impeccable balance, the 2016 is fabulously delicious...uncanny ability to deliver serious flavor intensity without excess heaviness...

94Wine Enthusiast

...Dense, intense and with the finest tannins. Great acidity and black fruits are supported by a serious, complex structure...

17Jancis Robinson

Exotically rich on the nose!...Racy and rich and lots of black fruit. Richness but some structure too..


France, Bordeaux, St.-Julien

Saint-Julien is the smallest of the four main Médoc appellations with 2,175 acres of vineyards. It is just south of Pauillac on the left bank of the Gironde, and although it has no First Growth châteaux, its 11 Classified Growth estates are widely admired. Robert M. Parker Jr. has written that winemaking in Saint-Julien from all classifications “is consistently both distinctive and brilliant.” He adds it is Médoc’s “most underrated commune.” The best-known estates are Léoville Las Cases, Ducru-Beaucaillou, Léoville Poyferré, Léoville Barton and Gruaud Larose, and most of those have riverside estates. The soil in this appellation is gravelly with clay. Cabernet Sauvignon is the main grape grown, and it is blended with Cabernet Franc, Merlot and sometimes small amounts of Petit Verdot.

This is the second label to Chateau Leoville-Las-Cases.
