Domaine de Léoville是 Medoc 區其中一個最舊的村莊，那裡曾是由最富有及影響力的法國貴族家庭擁有，其後由Las Cases家族購入。村落於法國革命期間的1826至1840年時分裂，而 Château Léoville Las Cases 隨之誕生
酒莊主牌酒的風土就是位於自十七世紀承傳下來最中心，最有歷史風味的風土。Léoville Las Cases 自十九世紀開始，已由同一個家族管理，現在由 Jean-Hubert Delon 代表，他也是 Medoc 區Château Potensac和 Pomerol 的 Chateau Nénin 的擁有者。
One of the oldest Medoc estates, Domaine de Léoville belonged to some of the wealthiest and most influential noble French families before it was acquired by the Las Cases family. The estate was split up between 1826 and 1840 as a result of the French Revolution. Château Léoville Las Cases was created.
The Grand Vin’s current terroir has therefore been at the historic heart of the original terroir since the 17th century. Léoville Las Cases has now been managed by the same family since the late 19th century and is today represented by Jean-Hubert Delon, sole owner of the Château and proprietor of Château Potensac in the Medoc and Château Nénin in Pomerol.
Saint Julien, Bordeaux
Country of Origin:
(2007)Cabernet Sauvignon 82%, Cabernet Franc 10%, and Merlot 8%
(2008)Cabernet Sauvignon 78%, Cabernet Franc 12%, and Merlot 10%
The 2007 has a very backward bouquet with blackberry, bilberry, tobacco and marine-like aromas that blossom in the glass given adequate aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannin, layers of blackberry and boysenberry fruit, sea salt, black pepper and plenty of tobacco towards the long and sustained finish. I would be inclined to give this a year or two in bottle, unlike most of the other Saint Julien wines this vintage, because there is a class act here.
A classic style of Las Cases that is somewhat masculine for the vintage, tannic and backward, and less formidably concentrated than the 2009 or 2010, the 2008 needs 7-8 years of cellaring. Dense purple, the aromatics are closed, but with coaxing and aggressive swirling, notes of crushed rock, black currants and some forest floor notes emerge. Impressively built, medium to full-bodied, layered and stunningly concentrated, this is a sleeper vintage for Leoville Las Cases that should improve considerably, given how closed it was the day I tasted it. It is another 30+ year wine from proprietor Jean-Hubert Delon.
