Chateau Leoville Las Cases Saint Julien 2eme Grand Cru Classe 2012
This vintage weaves a tapestry of blackberries, tobacco, and earthy nuances, crafting a symphony of flavors on the palate. With a firm structure and impressive longevity, it showcases the undeniable prowess of this historic estate.
Robert Parker The Wine Advocate
Wafting from the glass with aromas of rich berries, plums, loamy soil, baking spices and pencil shavings, the 2012 Léoville Las Cases is medium to full-bodied, lively and layered, with impressive concentration for the vintage, supple tannins and a charming, enveloping profile. Seamless and beautifully integrated, at age 10, this quintessential classic is already surprisingly approachable, though of course it still has several decades of graceful evolution ahead of it. - Reviewed by: William Kelley
