Leoville-las Cases 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

"The seriously endowed 2012 Las Cases exhibits a dense purple color as well as surprisingly sweet tannin and a forwardness that one does not normally find at this address. Medium to full-bodied with beautiful black currant, graphite, crushed rock and subtle oaky notes, it possesses lots of minerality and precision, impressive power, a rich mid-palate (which sets it apart from other St.-Juliens), and a long finish. It appears this beauty will be drinkable in 5-6 years, and last for 25 or more...93-95" WA 4/13 "A structured and powerful Las Cases. It really grabs you and makes you take note. Yet there is polish and refinement in the texture. Full body, with intense tannins and long, lively finish. The fruit acid balance is very pretty...94-95" JamesSuckling.com 04/13 "Barrel sample. This is a very solid wine with tannins that are very firm and dense. There is power without excessive alcohol, lending a classic feel, and a pure line from fruit, acidity and tannin. The result is as much about fruit as structure. ...95-97" WE 04/13

Displays a solid core of plum blackberry and cassis lined with roasted apple wood and backed by a hint of ganache and briar. Shows excellent integration overall with a serious iron note buried on the finish. A rock-solid version for this vintage.
