This shows beautiful aromas of flowers, raspberries and blackberries that follow through to a full body with ultra silky tannins and a long, long finish. It lasts for minutes. Best in 2018 or later.
A great wine, packed with black currant fruits, sweet tannins and beautiful acidity. Made by the team at Léoville las Cases, this wine reveals an elegant, restrained structure, ripe and delicious fruit and a darker, tighter texture for aging.
This has a lush edge, with seamlessly layered blueberry, blackberry and boysenberry fruit, along with a racy graphite edge and a back end of coffee and bittersweet ganache notes. A solid tug of iron is buried on the finish. Best from 2015 through 2030.
With the alcohol hitting 13.6% in a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc, this wine displays plenty of sweet kirsch, licorice and black currant fruit in a classy, seductive style, with medium to full body, soft but abundant tannins and a long finish. It does indeed possess the elegance and finesse of its bigger sibling, Leoville Las Cases. Drink it over the next 10-15 years.
Clos de Marquis is no longer a second wine, but rather one from a separate vineyard in the holdings of Leoville Las Cases. It should be thought of as a different entity, although the same winemaking team and philosophy are at play.
Ripe and fragrant, almost Merloty. An early maturer for a 2010 St-Julien. Very charming. Could almost be a second wine? Jancis Robinson
Deep forest aromas, kirsch and blackberry scents open to a medium/full bodied with charm, elegance, balance and a long fruit filled finish. As this still sells for a fair price, it’s well worth finding some and laying it down.by Jeff Leve 2013
