Description

The 2009 Ch. Léoville-Las Cases is an incredible wine. Ripe, creamy, juicy blackcurrants dance across the palate, perfectly in harmony with sweet spice and freshness. Fabulous, intense waves of supple fruit roll on and on in the mouth whilst a massive level of chiselled, Cabernet tannins crash on the tongue and then just disappear. Beautifully harmonious, this has wonderful poise and balance yet the greatness of the wine underneath is clear. This will undoubtedly be one of the wines of the vintage.
