Chateau-Leoville-Las-Cases Winery

The story of Leoville-Las-Cases begins with marshland, this being the Medoc after all, as to fully appreciate its history we must look back beyond the creation of Las-Cases itself to the time of the great Leoville estate, beginning in 1638. At this point the estate, clearly one of the oldest in the Médoc, was centred upon a mound of gravel around which there was only marsh, which regularly flooded at high tide. This was the Mont-Moytié estate, the mont being the gravel mound, Moytié a wealthy local who owned the property.
 
It was the Moytie family that were the first to plant vines here, during the twilight years of the 17th century, and it is through the marriage of one of the Moytié women that the estate then passed into the hands of her husband, Blaise Antoine Alexandre de Gascq. De Gascq was the seigneur of Léoville and a president of the Bordeaux parliament, locally an extremely influential and also wealthy figure, who did much to bolster the reputation of the estate. Even at this early point in the history of the Medoc, Leoville was recognised as being second only to the four accepted first growths, Latour, Lafite, Margaux and Pontac (Haut-Brion).

Chateau Leoville Las Cases 'Saint-Julien' 1996


98 Points Wine Advocate

"Having previously rated it nearly perfect, I was apprehensive of a letdown about tasting the 1996 Leoville Las Cases once it had been bottled, but that concern was quickly dismissed once I put my nose in the glass. A profound Leoville Las Cases, it is one of the great modern day wines of Bordeaux. This wine's hallmark remains a sur-maturite (over-ripeness) of the Cabernet Sauvignon grape .....

Chateau Leoville Las Cases 'Saint-Julien' 1998


93 Points Wine Advocate
93 Points Wine Spectator

"Impressive dark, almost purple color. Intense aromas of crushed blackberries, minerals, mint and currant follow through to a full body, with licorice and berry character and a long, velvety finish. Needs a bit of time still, but very enjoyable already. Very serious for the vintage.-'88/'98 Bordeaux blind retrospective (2008). Best after 2011." 93 Points Wine Advocate, 2008 &quo .....

Chateau Leoville Las Cases 'Saint-Julien' 2005


100 Points Wine Spectator

"This is breathtaking. Black in color, with incredible aromas of crushed blackberry, mineral, licorice and lead pencil. Full-bodied, with a mind-blowing texture of seamless tannins that coat every millimeter of the palate. Goes on and on, with licorice, currant and flowers. Time will tell if it's better than the 2000. Best after 2017." 100 Points Wine Spectator   "A .....

Chateau Leoville Las Cases 2nd Growth St-Julien 2010


98 Points Wine Spectator

"The 2010 is a quintessentially elegant, classic wine of Bordeaux – firm, rigid, perhaps slightly lighter than most of the other St.-Juliens, but stylish, potentially complex, and reminiscent of the style of the 1986, but more concentrated and powerful. This wine displays loads of black currants, cedar wood and vanillin, but needs a good 7-8 years of cellaring, if not much longer. It sh .....

Chateau Leoville Las Cases 2nd Growth St‐Julien 1990


96 Points Wine Advocate

"As one might expect, this is a brilliant wine, but it remains shockingly young, even for the fast evolving 1990s. Its deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by a classic, nearly restrained set of aromatics that includes notions of sweet black cherries, black currants, lead pencil, and wet stones. In the mouth, it is full-bodied, and while technically low in acidity, there is a freshness, deli .....

Chateau Leoville Las Cases St-Julien 1989


96 Points Wine Spectator

"Very ripe, with raisin and dried fruits on the nose. You can smell the sun-dried grapes. Full-bodied, delivering firm tannins and a very fresh palate. Long and flavorful, offering currant, berries and all sorts of dark fruits, but turns lightly earthy and floral. This is a thoroughly complex wine. Just starting to really open into the mature 20-year-old wine it is, but such a great life ahea .....

Chateau Leoville Las Cases St‐Julien 1995


95 Points Wine Advocate

"If it were not for the prodigious 1996, everyone would be concentrating on getting their hands on a few bottles of the fabulous 1995 Leoville-Las-Cases, which is one of the vintage's great success stories. The wine boasts an opaque ruby/purple color, and exceptionally pure, beautifully knit aromas of black fruits, minerals, vanillin, and spice. On the attack, it is staggeringly rich, yet .....

"Wow. Really youthful on the nose, with currant, blackberry and hints of vanilla bean. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and lots of mint and fruit. Goes on for a long time. Surprisingly youthful. Give it a couple of years. So focused and beautiful." 95 Points Wine Spectator

Clos du Marquis Saint Julien 2005


93 Points Wine Spectator

"The superb second wine of Chateau Leoville Las Cases, the 2005 Clos du Marquis, reflects the utter brilliance of the 2005 grand vin. It boasts an inky/ruby/purple colour along with a sweet perfume of lead pencil, ripe cherries and black currants, and hints of earth and vanillin. Dense, chewy, fleshy, and full-bodied, this beauty will be drinkable in 3-4 years, and should keep for 15-20.&qu .....
