Château Léoville las Cases Red Bordeaux Blend St. Julien 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

Power and richness are the name of the game for this Second Growth estate in Saint-Julien. Wines are often quite Pauillac-like in its black fruit and mineral character and firm tannic spine. They also stack up well to the First Growths in the Medoc, and the prices reflect this: Leoville-Las Cases is one of the most expensive Medoc wines apart from the superstars. After a major overhauling of the vineyards in the 1950s, vines average 30 years in age. Wines are generally deeply colored, hugely concentrated and generally in need of extended aging. - WA

very tight, oaky nose, dark jam, and more oak, with class, and dark cherry fruit coming back,sweet tobacco, more structure shining through, and more fruit countering. Still very tight, and a lot of oak. Has class,but needs a lot of time. Almost new world like. If you're drinking today, leave this one alone. 7/19/09

Minty, eucalyptus in nose, great depth and elegance. A balanced tannin and acidity, this wine could last years . Compared with the Hess Collection 2004, the Las Casse felt like a disciplines athlete with royal pedigree, whereas the Hess resembled a sweet chobby youth that everyone liking to hang around with. So, who do you want to hang out with? It would most definitely depend on the occasion, (and the budget!). Either way, they are both extreme enjoyable. (tasted against Hess collection Cab 2004) 92 points, tasted on March 19, 2009

This is the essence of currants and berries with minerals and flowers. Full-bodied, with silky, refined tannins. Superlong and impressive. A beauty. Love it... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2002 Leoville-Las Cases 750ml

...considerable density, a ruby/purple color, layers of flavor, and a classic overall personality. The wine exhibits pure black currant, licorice-infused fruit, huge body, a viscous mid-palate, and a long, heady finish... (April 2005) Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2002 Leoville-Las Cases 750ml
