2000 Chateau Leoville-Las Cases - 99 Pts!
This wine has put on weight and as impressive as it was from cask it is even more brilliant from bottle. Only 35% of the crop made it into the 2000 Leoville Las Cases a blend of 76.8% Cabernet Sauvignon 14.4% Merlot and 8.8% Cabernet Franc. The wine is truly profound with an opaque purple color and a tight but promising nose of vanilla sweet cherry liqueur black currants and licorice in a dense full-bodied almost painfully rich intense style with no hard edges. This seamless classic builds in the mouth with a finish that lasts over 60 seconds. Still primary yet extraordinarily pure this compelling wine which continues to build flavor intensity and exhibit additional layers of texture is a tour de force in winemaking and certainly one of the great Leoville Las Cases. In another sense it symbolizes / pays homage to proprietor Michel Delon who passed away in 2000. Michel has been succeeded by his son Jean-Hubert another perfectionist. RP
