Château Léoville-Las Cases Grand Vin de Leoville du Marquis de las Cases Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

$299

The 2009 is one of the greatest Leoville Las Cases I have ever tasted, which is saying something given the many compelling wines that have been made at this estate...boasts an inky/purple color, monumental concentration, and great clarity and purity of creme de cassis, black cherry, spice box, graphite, and wet rock characteristics. Extremely full-bodied with a boatload of sweet tannin nearly concealed by the wine's power, glycerin, and awesome fruit concentration, this intense effort never tastes heavy or tiring. This remarkable St.-Julien should be accessible in 3-4 years, and will evolve for 40-50. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2063. Robert Parker

Soft & feminine aromatics of cherry blossom & rose petal. Black currant, cigar box on palate with ripe tannins. Needs time but a beauty!

A wonderfully ripe and lush nose with gobs of red fruit and lush depth. On the palate broad and sexy. Still super young- hard to see how this pans out. Less of the obvious structure, clarity and elegance of these but I presume this will settle into its usual classy self.

Not the most complex beautifully balanced. Still young and tannic

A real standout at today's tasting. It's just a baby, but there's so much potential here. Focused intensity, understated elegance and gorgeous minerality.
