Leoville Las Cases 2010
Chateau Leoville Las Cases is a second growth estate in the Saint Julien appellation of Bordeaux. Its wines are elegant and in top vintages considered on par with many of the first growths.
"Stunning and pure from the get-go, with intense cassis and blackberry fruit. Ultimately takes a slightly austere approach, with a wrought-iron structure driving along while pastis, black tea, liquorice snap and asphalt notes course underneath. Long and loaded with grip, this remains remarkably fine-grained. A very chiseled Cabernet that is wonderfully precise and incredibly long." - 99pts, Wine Spectator
