Chateau Leoville Las Cases Pauillac 2nd Grand Cru Classe 2018

The 2018 Chateau Leoville Las Cases from Pauillac is a 2nd Grand Cru Classe Bordeaux blend consisting of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, and 9% Cabernet Franc. It has a deep ruby color and a nose of black currants, blackberries, and graphite. On the palate, it is full-bodied, with firm tannins, juicy acidity, and a long finish.

Wine Enthusiast

Layered with dry tannins and concentrated texture, this major wine offers an impressive structure and promises considerable aging. Black-currant fruits are still tied to the tannins. The wine exudes richness and a classic profile. To say this wine will age is an understatement. Do not touch before 2028 at the earliest. Roger Voss

Robert Parker (Wine Advocate) -

The 2018 Léoville Las Cases is composed of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Cabernet Franc and 9% Merlot, harvested September 15 to October 4 with yields of 35.5 hectoliters per hectare, it has 14.49% alcohol and was aged in 90% new barriques. Deep purple-black colored, it needs a fair bit of coaxing to reveal striking scents of blackcurrant pastilles, wild blueberries and redcurrant jelly, giving way to notions of crushed rocks, lavender, Indian spices, unsmoked cigars and black truffles, plus a provocative waft of rose oil. The full-bodied palate is densely laden with black fruit preserves and earthy layers, accented by bright, lively red berry and floral sparks. It has a rock-solid frame of firm, ripe, grainy tannins and bold freshness, finishing very long and wonderfully minerally. The tannins are so beautifully approachable even at this youthful stage, making it delicious to drink now, but afford it 5-6 years in bottle to allow those finer nuances to emerge and drink it over the next 40+ years. - Reviewed by Lisa Perrotti-Brown
