Notes des dégustateurs 

98/100 - The Wine Cellar Insider
"This is a super wine, that in time, should go up in score. But patience is needed here. Decanted 4 hours, that was not enough to tame the strict tannins. Still, it was impossible not to enjoy the perfectly ripe, regal, red and black fruits, intensity, length and concentration found here. This is was the older British writers called good breed. I get their point, even if the term is archaic. All that being said, perhaps, this will be ready between 2025-2030 for the start of its long, 100 year life. (January 2018)"

97/100 - Vinous/ Neal Martin
"The 2005 Léoville Las Cases is a wine that needs more time. The nose remains broody compared to the 2007, but is an absolute joy, featuring brambly red fruit, tobacco, smoke, morels and light estuarine scents. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins that have become more supple over the last couple of years. There is wonderful depth and gentle grip, superb balance and a sense of symmetry on the finish that is quite brilliant. I suspect this will turn out to be one of the chateau greatest achievements of recent years. (December 2019)"

98/100 - Wine Spectator
"Sleek and racy, with black currant and fig fruit laced liberally with a bright iron streak and singed alder notes. This is very tightly coiled, as the fruit seems to be preserved for now, while the cold fireplace character holds sway. A superb energy in reserve gives this more than enough time to wait. Could outlast them all in this vintage. Best from 2025 through 2050. (February 2018)"

98/100 - Wine Advocate - Robert Parker
"(...) This dense ruby/purple wine has a stunningly pure bouquet of dark fruit, wet rocks, graphite, and subtle background toast/vanillin. Full-bodied, masculine, and very deep and concentrated, this titanic effort is at least 8-10 years away from its plateau of maturity. The Delon family have produced another legend. Anticipated maturity: 2023-2050+. (June 2015)"

18+/20 - Jancis Robinson
"Mid to deep crimson. A stony, mineral undertow on the nose but with lovely lift and haunting scents too. Firm with a very ripe spread of flavours that almost distract from the weight of fine tannins underneath. Unlike some wines, this wears its tannic charge effortlessly. Racy and lifted. A very successful Las Cases. (January 2015)"

19,5/20 - Revue du Vin de France
"Après une heure de décantation, il se montre encore impénétrable et serré au nez. La bouche est impressionnante de fougue. Les arômes de fruits frais et les tannins tapissent le palais. Doté d'un volume monumental et d'une longueur impressionnante, ce vin peut attendre au moins une décennie. (Novembre 2014)"


Né au milieu du 17e siècle, le 2e Cru Classé Léoville Las Cases est bien connu des amateurs pour son incroyable régularité qualitative et sa formidable complexité aromatique. Cette dernière est due à la mosaïque de terroirs variés dont est issu le grand vin : ces 53 précieux hectares baptisés « le Clos » au nord de Saint-Julien, contigus au Château Latour, sont en effet dédiés à la production du Cru Classé. Jean-Hubert Delon est le seul propriétaire du vignoble depuis 2011. Il en a confié la direction à Pierre Graffeuille.

Issu d’une majorité de cabernet-sauvignon (80% en moyenne), le vin de Léoville Las Cases arbore toujours une robe très foncée couleur encre, caractéristique du cru. Classe, profondeur, densité, mais aussi noblesse des tanins et fruit somptueux sont ses grandes qualités, sans oublier un potentiel de garde presque sans limite.

Depuis peu, un Second vin a vu le jour, Le Petit Lion du Marquis de Las Cases. Sur une autre parcelle de 44 hectares, la famille Delon produit depuis 1902 le fameux Clos du Marquis, devenu un cru à part entière, d’une qualité remarquable, extrêmement racé.
