Along with the Medoc first growths, Leoville Barton, Chateau Montrose, Sociando Mallet, and a handful of other producers, Leoville Las Cases continues to make a wine meant for very long-term cellaring. When I did my earlier tastings of the 2000, my projected maturity dates were 2012-2040, but it is looking more like 2020-2050. This full-bodied blend of nearly 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14.4% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc still has a youthful ruby/purple color, notes of graphite, kirsch liqueur, black currants, and lead pencil shavings, with good acidity, the tell-tale purity, layered ripeness and intensity, and a profound finish. However, with its high level of tannin and brooding backwardness, this superb effort needs to be forgotten for up to a decade.

This wine has put on weight and as impressive as it was from cask it is even more brilliant from bottle. Only 35% of the crop made it into the 2000 Leoville Las Cases a blend of 76.8% Cabernet Sauvignon 14.4% Merlot and 8.8% Cabernet Franc. The wine is truly profound with an opaque purple color and a tight but promising nose of vanilla sweet cherry liqueur black currants and licorice in a dense full-bodied almost painfully rich intense style with no hard edges. This seamless classic builds in the mouth with a finish that lasts over 60 seconds. Still primary yet extraordinarily pure this compelling wine which continues to build flavor intensity and exhibit additional layers of texture is a tour de force in winemaking and certainly one of the great Leoville Las Cases. In another sense it symbolizes / pays homage to proprietor Michel Delon who passed away in 2000. Michel has been succeeded by his son Jean-Hubert another perfectionist. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2040. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
