Chateaux Leoville - Three Vintages from Three Amazing Properties
Year in and year out, experienced collectors are quick to invest in the three Léoville wines thanks to their consistency and track record of performance in the cellar. Acclaimed vintages like 2010 and 2016 are almost no-brainer purchases that will approach 30-40 years of peak drinking for each wine -- and almost certainly longer for the powerhouse Las Cases. Yet there are still vintages that remain overlooked and underappreciated even among savvy buyers. We've previously highlighted 2017 as one such vintage and the incredible value available from Las Cases, Poyferré, and Barton in this vintage compels us to hammer home this point again. While every cellar should deservedly be anchored by home runs like 2010 and 2016, the nearly 2-for-1 "discount" available from 2017 compared to the other two vintages is worth highlighting -- especially when an extra point or two in the ratings is reflected by $100 or more per bottle. This afternoon we are pleased to offer three highly rated vintages from Léoville-Las Cases, Léoville Poyferré, and Léoville Barton that allow for the opportunity to build your cellar around some of the most proven properties in all of Bordeaux. So revered are the wines from this corner of the world that former US president Thomas Jefferson once lauded the original estate as "Lionville" upon his first visit in 1788. Almost 250 years later, very little has changed and the wines have only gotten better with each generation. This 3-year collection of Léoville-Las Cases, Léoville Poyferré, and Léoville Barton will be arriving at TCWC early next year.
