Reviews/Information
"93 out of 100 - Jean-Hubert Delon thinks the 2001 Leoville Las Cases could turn out to be as good as his 2000. I?m not sure I agree, but it may come close. A blend of 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19.5% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc, the 2001 (which represents only 40% of the production) reveals notes of sweet vanillin intermixed with pure cassis, black cherries, and lead pencil shavings. Elegant and medium-bodied, it possesses a saturated purple color, high tannin, and a structured, backward feel in the mouth. This quintessentially elegant Las Cases needs another 5-7 years to hit its plateau of maturity. It will be one of the Medoc?s longest lived wines of the vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2030." - Robert M. Parker, Jr., Wine Advocate
