Chateau Leoville las Cases St. Julien 2010
"...dense purple, full-bodied style of Las Cases, with classic sweet kirsch, graphite and black currant fruit as well as hints of new saddle leather and subtle oak. Backward, layered and multi-dimensional, the wine is stunningly rich, but brooding...95-98" WA 5/11 "This is very silky, with a racy and fresh character of violets, currants and raspberries.

82% cabernet sauvignon 10% merlot 8% cabernet franc. Yields were only 36.7 hl/ha. 13.7% alcohol. Aged in 75% new oak barrels. Dark cherry blueberry and cassis reveal themselves on a sweet candied nose and notes of toasty brioche offer lift and complexity. With massive tannins on the palate the fruit seems somewhat muted at the moment. Time should help bring this into balance. There is good length but without a more elegant expression of fruit this will turn out to be a drop-off from thei
A blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon 10% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc represents 36.7% of the harvest. The wine reached 13.7% alcohol which is l0wer than the 13.8% level recorded in 2009. Opaque purple in color this big concentrated thick wine is stuffed with ripe cassis and fresh blackberries. Powerful tannic ripe fresh and dense this masculine wine requires serious cellar time to become civilized. Jeff Leve.
Bright ruby-red. Vibrant nose combines black and blue fruits lead pencil and crushed-stone minerality with a note of kirsch emerging with air. Utterly silky in texture yet extremely backward with a medicinal quality keeping the penetrating dark berry flavors under wraps today. But with a powerful impression of tangy energy a superb spine of saline minerality and an extremely long lively firmly tannic finish this classic Las Cases should be a knockout with 12 or 15 years in the bottle.
2010 Leoville Las Cases: As one would expect, this is a powerful, concentrated wine with 13.7% natural alcohol (compared to 2005s 13.2%). The pH is quite normal at 3.56, and its relatively high total acidity gives it a classic, fresh, yet backward s... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

This has almost searing acidity running through it, but it's ripe and mouthwatering, harnessing a massive core of black currant and red licorice notes. Supertight but very fine-grained, this gets tighter, but also longer, as it moves along. This coul... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Leoville-Las Cases 1500ml
Stunning and pure from the get-go, with intense cassis and blackberry fruit. Ultimately takes a slightly austere approach, with a wrought-iron structure driving along while pastis, black tea, licorice snap and asphalt notes course underneath. Long and loaded with grip, this remains remarkably fine-grained. A very chiseled Cabernet that is wonderfully precise and incredibly long. Best from 2020 through 2040.
