Winemaker Notes

This superb 2010 expresses a delicate fruit, but very persistent. A perfectly worked wine, at once accessible and promotor. We are under the spell of superb velvety tannins. A very nice entry into before opening the great wine of Léoville!  

About Winery

Chateau Leoville Las Cases is one of the largest and oldest classified growths in the Medoc region of France. Originally the other two Leovilles, Leoville Poyferre and Leoville Barton were part of the large estate. Today Leoville Las Cases comprises over 209 acres and has been run since 1950 by the Delon Family. Currently, the estate is run by the well-known Michel Delon.

The estate stretches from Chateau Beychevelle down to Chateau Latour, and the main estate is a picturesque, enclosed 100 acre vineyard depicted on the label. The winery is established as a Second Growth. vineyard.

Wine Enthusiast

Attractively ripe, this second wine from Château Léoville las Cases is initially fruity. The structure comes through only slowly to reveal itself.The wine is ripe yet shot through with acidity. Likely to develop quickly.

Wine Spectator

Sleek and well-rendered, this features an iron note that runs from start to finish, along with ganache, charcoal, pastis and crushed plum and blackberry fruit. Not as dense as the top examples, but offers textbook typicity, solid drive and a long finish. Best from 2014 through 2024.

James Suckling

A solid second wine with firm and silky tannins. Full and racy with a mineral and blueberry after taste. Good intensity. Try in 2016.
