"100 out of 100... In total contract, the 2009 Château Leoville Las Cases was a blockbuster that gave the impression you throw as much air at it as you could muster, and it would just shrug and keep going. Deeply colored, full-bodied, ripe, unctuous, yet still structured and tannic, it had insane purity and focus, an incredible texture, sweet tannin, and sensational length. This is Bordeaux at its finest and I only wish I could afford to fill the cellar with bottles." - Jeb Dunnuck, Hedonist Gazette
"99 out of 100…Medium to deep garnet colored, the 2009 Léoville Las Cases rocks up with a drop-dead gorgeous nose of baked blackberries, warm plums and crème de cassis with suggestions of violets, rose hip tea, dark chocolate, menthol and sandalwood. Full-bodied, rich, concentrated and decadent in the mouth, it has super ripe, fine-grained tannins and seamless freshness, finishing very long and exotic.
" - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate
"98 out of 100...This is gorgeously layered with cassis bush, anise, roasted fig and plum reduction notes all framed by racy espresso and graphite. Very deep and very long, with terrific intensity on the finish thanks to razor cut from the seemingly endless iron spine. With its purity and precision, this mineral-driven Cabernet should cruise for two decades. Best from 2020 through 2035. 14,165 cases made." - James Molesworth, Wine Spectator
"99 out of 100...Amazing aromas of cep mushrooms, dark fruits and fresh flowers, follow through to a full body and super velvety tannins with a long long finish. Gorgeous structure to this. Sexy and almost decadent. Just like when I tasted it in Hong Kong. Try in 2019." - James Suckling
