I have most of the Grand cru Bordeaux wines available, however, I am not into price wars and these wines are extremely price sensitive. When you buy one and think you are getting a great deal, the thing you have to remember is that the knowledge provided by someone like me is half the value. There is no point in drinking these wines and not having a sense of place, I guarantee that after drinking one of these wines and having spoken to me about it, the experience will be a thousand times better to your benefit. Please contact me if interested in the experience.
Chateau Leoville Las Cases Character and Style
Leoville Las Cases produces a structured, firm, austere, powerful, classic style of Bordeaux wine. In the top vintages, buyers should be aware that Leoville Las Cases takes 15 to 20 or more years to develop and shed its tannic structure in the top vintages.
At that point in time, Leoville Las Cases will display cedar, cassis, dark berries, truffle and tobacco notes in a style that often resembles a First Growth Pauillac. Yet, it is uniquely Chateau Leoville Las Cases. Leoville Las Cases is a traditional Bordeaux in many ways.
The cellar master, Bruno Rolland is the third generation of his family to work as the cellar master at the chateau. However, while they are you extremely traditional in most things, in one instance, Leoville Las Cases did not follow tradition.
In 1988, the chateau withdrew from the Conseil des Grands Crus Classes and does not participate in any of their events or functions. They are the only Classified estate to do so. Because the 1855 Classification of the Medoc is a part of French law, they cannot withdraw from the classification, even if they desired.
This is my favorite wine off all wines.
