Chateau Leoville Las Cases is today among the most emblematic estates of the prestigious Saint-Julien appellation located on the Left Bank from the Bordeaux region. Its wines continue to reach the peaks of excellence and elegance vintage after vintage. Chateau Leoville Las Cases is recognized as one of the oldest estates in the Medoc with a heritage based on a long wine tradition. The lion statue that adorns the estate’s entrance gate makes its instantly recognizable as Chateau Leoville Las Cases.

As a Second Classified Growth of 1855, its excellence in quality earns the estate the title of “First of the Second Crus”. The Delon family took control of the estate at the end of the 19th century and it is now led by Jean-Hubert Delon. Chateau Leoville Las Cases has been a model for exceptional quality consistency since the 1970s.

The strength of this estate is its exceptional terroir. Chateau Leoville Las Cases has 55 hectares planted inside the renowned Clos de Leoville with a complex mosaic of terroirs. The Gironde River near the estate benefits the vineyards as a heat regulator. It helps to keep temperatures moderate and acts as a frost barrier. The vines grow in Gunz gravel soils that is made up of a gravel-sandy subsoil on top of a deep layer of clay. This terroir is at the core of the estate’s exceptional wines that display the typicity of each of the symbolic Left Bank black varieties, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.

Rating RP 95 - 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 displays more noticeable tannin than its younger sibling. Exceptionally ripe cassis fruit the judicious use of toasty new oak and a thrilling mineral character intertwined with the high quality of fruit routinely obtained by Las Cases make this a compelling effort. There is probably nearly as much tannin as in the 1996 but it is not as perfectly sweet as in the 1996. The finish is incredibly long in this classic. Only 35% of the harvest was of sufficient quality for the 1995 Leoville-Las-Cases. RP
