"A legendary wine in the making..." Jeb Dunnuck

The 2015 Chateau Leoville Las Cases is our #1 Pick Of 2018!

This blue-chip Bordeaux is the ambassador of a blockbuster 2015 vintage.

A neighbor to Chateau Latour, Leoville Las Cases is a Second Growth Bordeaux that exudes personality. Dense crème de cassis, blackberry, baked blueberries, currant, fig and boysenberry. It is a robust wine with fantastic grip and tension; it is phenomenally structured and will reward those with patience.

Often likened to a First Growth, time in the bottle will allow this wine to blossom with rick dark berry, truffle, cedar, walnut and tobacco notes.

Here are some other highlights of what you can expect from this beauty:

"The 2015 Leoville Las Cases is simply captivating... sumptuous, racy and explosive... " Vinous

"Built like a brick house, with firm, ripe, velvety tannins and seamless freshness..." The Wine Advocate

"Excellent focus and beauty." James Suckling

"Filled with blackberry, black currant, fig and boysenberry preserve flavors." Wine Spectator

"A legendary wine in the making..." Jeb Dunnuck

You don't have to be a collector to appreciate this stunning red. Cellar a few bottles "for 6-7 years and enjoy this prodigious effort over the following 3-4 decades." Jeb Dunnuck

Summary


WINE ENTHUSIAST

99 / 100

"Cellar Selection"

"This wine that comes mainly from a magnificent walled vineyard within sight of the Gironde estuary is structured and dense. Its tannins and firm character show its enormous aging potential. Powerful black fruits come from the 85% Cabernet Sauvignon in this rich, juicy wine. Drink from 2027."

JEB DUNNUCK

99 / 100

"A legendary wine in the making from the Delon Family is the 2015 Leoville Las Cases and there are very few wines more impressive in the vintage. A blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc, and the balance Merlot, this full-bodied, tight, super-concentrated, focused 2015 boasts an awesome bouquet of crème de cassis, graphite, charcoal, lead pencil, and minerality. Deep, layered, with perfect ripeness and building tannin, hide bottle for 6-7 years and enjoy this prodigious effort over the following 3-4 decades."

THE WINE ADVOCATE

98+ / 100

"Composed of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc and 6% Merlot, the medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Léoville Las Cases has a slightly closed nose, revealing notes of crème de cassis, baked blueberries and black forest cake with touches of licorice, violets and Indian spices plus a waft of dusty soil. The palate is medium to full-bodied, concentrated and built like a brick house, with firm, ripe, velvety tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long and spicy."

VINOUS

98 / 100

"The 2015 Léoville Las Cases is simply captivating. Sumptuous, racy and explosive in the glass, the 2015 is endowed with tremendous energy from start to finish. An exotic melange of crème de cassis, graphite, menthol and licorice bursts onto the palate as the 2015 shows off its alluring personality. Spectacularly rich, dense and full-throttle, with huge tannins that are nearly buried underneath the fruit, the 2015 is an unusual Las Cases. It is also breathtakingly beautiful. Readers who can find it should not miss it."
