    2021 En Primeur - Château Léoville-Las Cases

    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. (Expropriation of emigrants’ property and constitution of egalitarian redistribution). Château Léoville Las Cases was created, thanks to a kind of birthright, from 3/5 of the original estate and the heart of the domain.

    Château Léoville-Las Cases is widely considered to be one of the best of the second growths, a “Super Second” as it has sometimes been called. The Château consistently produces great wines year on year and are always memorable to those lucky enough to try them. The 2020 is no exception to this with some fantastic scores. The Petit Lion has also turned out to be one of the best second wines of this year’s releases.

    2021 Château Léoville-Las Cases, Saint-Julien
    GBP 975 IB per case of 6x75cl EP (limited quantity)The 2021 Léoville Las-Cases is classy, nuanced and so expressive. There's gorgeous depth, and yet the 2021 is not as explosive as it has been in the recent past. That's not a bad thing, not at all. Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc comprise fully 95% of the blend in a Las Cases that is beautifully persistent from start to finish. It's a wine that has one foot in its rich, historical past, and the other very much in the more modern style of contemporary vintages. There is so much to look forward to. 94-96 points Antonio Galloni, Vinous
