Tasting Notes

Goedhuis, May 2007, Score: 93-95

Las Cases' 2006 is noteworthy: dark, powerful and full-bodied with a dense, chewy mouthfeel and velvety tannins. Its impressive core of dark berry fruit and cedary, savoury oak carries it well into its long, silky finish. Wine Spectator compares it to their glorious 1996. A powerful and impressive 2006.

Producer

Château Léoville Las Cases

If ever another wine gets promoted to first growth category, Léoville Les Cases will undoubtedly bethe one. Owned by the Delon family, this château is comprised of 97 hectares of vineyards. However,unlike most of its Médoc neighbours, it only uses the vineyards classified in the original 1855 classification, an area called "Le Grand Enclos", to make its grand vin.

Region

St Julien, Red Bordeaux

St Julien is like the middle child of the Médoc - not as assertive as Pauillac or as coquettish as Margaux. It lies firmly between the two more outspoken communes and as a result produces a blend of them both. St Julien's wines have often been sought out by aficionados for their balance and consistency, particularly in the UK. Yet due to its middle child nature, it can occasionally be overlooked globally and as a result underrated by those markets outside the UK. Despite the fact that it has no first growths, it has several second growths including Léoville Las Cases, Léoville Barton, Léoville Poyferré and Ducru Beaucaillou as well as the celebrated châteaux such as Talbot and Beychevelle.
