Description · Château Léoville Las Cases

2008 Château Léoville Las Cases (Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot)

The harvest here was from October 6th to the 18th, and the wine is 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Cabernet Franc and 12% Merlot. The ultimate yield for the estate was 37.9 hl/ha. Wow - what a captivating nose! Intense black cherry fruit, minerally and pure, crunchy but rich, layered with cream and vanilla. Pure, but as the nose suggests stunningly rich and intense, and broad.

It was an excellent accompanist for the main course. I drank this 2015 with my co-workers.
Dark red colour . You can really feel the vanilla smell. Perfect balance of acidity.

Chateau Leoville las Casses 2015
It's always good to share wine, but this one's special.
It showed a lighter colour than expected. Aromas of oak. Hints of toast on the palate.
We drank it solo, no pairing needed.

The best wine for grilled foie. I love to sharing this wine with friends.
Red as a Cherry. Deep scent, like coffee. Chocolate and toffee flavour.

Château Léoville las Cases Bordeaux Saintjulien 2012
My friend gave it to me as a gift, and I'm happy he did.
The border colour was almost brown. Distinctive scents of cherry and liquorice. Astringent, rough taste.
