Chateau Leoville Las-Cases 2005

75cl / 13%

“This is breathtaking. Black in color, with incredible aromas of crushed blackberry, mineral, licorice and lead pencil.

Full-bodied, with a mind-blowing texture of seamless tannins that coat every millimeter of the palate. Goes on and on, with licorice, currant and flowers.

Time will tell if it’s better than the 2000. Best after 2017.”

About the Chateau Leoville Las-Cases 2005

“A stunningly complex and complete nose of flowers, dark fruits, and minerals. Very perfumed and subtle at the same time. The palate is full, yet tight and powerful with perfect tannins and a long, long finish. The quality of the tannins is phenomenal, please leave this alone for ten years.”

~ James Suckling

Tasting Notes

Colour: Black red
Nose: Polished aromas of red and blackberry fruit with hints of graphite, leather, and smoke.
Palate: The energy in the wine is remarkable: beautiful, lithe juice that carries a flavor close to tiny currants and black cherries, but a flavor all its own. The deep stones of Le Clos and the roses with their view of the Gironde seem to be there in the wine as well. Harmonious and jazzed. Long finish – persistence of flavor that lasts long enough to become a memory, an imprint on whatever synaptic connection may store and recall the greatest pleasures of taste.
Grape Varieties: 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc
Aging: The fermentation vessels include a fascinating mix of wooden, cement and stainless steel vats. When finished the wine is pumped to the barrel cellar. Here it is transferred into oak barrique, between 50% and 100% new for the grand vin, Chateau Léoville-Las-Cases, depending on the vintage.
Awards: 100pts – Wine Spectator; 99pts James Suckling, 98pts Wine&Spirits, 97pts Wine Enthusiast. 93pts Decanter”

History of Chateau Leoville Las-Cases

Château Léoville-Las Cases is an estate in the Saint-Julien appellation of Bordeaux, ranked as a second growth in the 1855 Classification of the Médoc and Graves. The estate has a history dating back to the mid-17th Century, when it used to be part of a much larger estate. During the French Revolution (1789-1799) the estate was divided in two with a small section becoming Château Léoville Barton. In 1840, the original estate was again divided, creating Château Léoville-Poyferre. All three of the Léoville châteaux were named in the 1855 Classification as second growths, but Léoville-Las Cases remains the largest. There are 98 hectares (242 acres) of vineyards, planted with 66 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 24 percent Merlot, 9 percent Cabernet Franc and 1 percent Petit Verdot. Domaines Delon, proprietors of the estate, also own Château Potensac in the Medoc and Château Nénin in Pomerol.
