Label for Château Léoville Las Cases 2009, Saint Julien (non owc)

Product Details

Tasting Notes

A brilliant Leoville Las Cases that even at this young age seems open and exciting; The huge levels of tannin in the wine are somehow hidden by the levels of fruit, but both are in such perfect balance that this wine will last a lifetime; Mainly Cabernet Sauvignon (76 percent), the blackcurrant and blackberry fruits come to the fore.

A true 'vin de garde' that will mature beautifully over the next 30 years or more. James Griswood - Wine Buyer

Expert Opinion

What our expert says

17/20 Jancis Robinson

In the press...

The 2009 Leoville Las Cases may be the most open-knit and forward Las Cases I have tasted to date. Analytically, it is high in tannin and the alcohol is 13.8%, nearly a record at this estate. This blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc was showing brilliantly at the 2009 tasting I did in Hong Kong and at a later tasting. It boasts an inky/purple color, monumental concentration and lots of sweet, jammy black currant, black cherry and kirsch fruit intermixed with crushed rock and mineral notes. As always, proprietor Jean-Hubert Delon has built a massive wine with exceptional precision, unbelievable purity and aging potential of 40-50 years. I was surprised by the lusciousness of this cuvee on several occasions, and how much more forward it is given the fact that Las Cases can often be forebodingly backward and in need of 10-15 years of cellaring (at age 30, the 1982 is still a baby in terms of development!). The super-concentrated 2009 needs another 5-7 years before additional nuances emerge. This is a brilliant, full-throttle St.-Julien.

Regional info

St Julien - The wines from St Julien are very similar to those from Pauillac, although generally better priced as their reputation is not as high. It is home to the most second growths of any of the left bank communes, and second only to Pauillac in the total number of classed growths.
