Château Léoville Las Cases

Château Léoville-Las Cases

Clos du Marquis Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2017

First tried about a year ago. A blend of 72% Cab Sauv, 27% Merlot and 1% Cab Franc, deep Ruby with aromas of black fruit and floral aromas. On the palate blackberry, currant and plum flavors with cacao and oak notes. Fine grainy tannins, medium+ finish, good balance ending with fruit, earthy herbs and cedar notes. — 11 days ago

Château Léoville-Las Cases

Grand Vin de Leoville du Marquis de las Cases Saint-Julien Cabernet sauvignon 2006

This is a powerful wine, here is a lot of complexity in the bottle. A great structure and a robust mouth filling, the tannins a little softer then the last bottle way back but still firm. Great bottle of wine and some decades ahead, but not this one🤣😋 — 7 months ago

Château La Lagune

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2019

There is something special about La Lagune. In my younger days I read an interview with Émile Peynaud where he stated that in the whole of the Médoc there are only a handful of wines that can support 100% new oak: the first growths, Leoville-las-Cases, and maybe La Lagune as it is the most aromatic. The times have changed ever since, but there is some truth in the aromatic side of La Lagune. While I have good memories of some older vintages (1970 and 1982 come to mind), the wines have never been better than under the reign of Caroline Frey. This 2019 is absolutely gorgeous. After 10 minutes in the glass it displays black and red fruits, cedar wood and spices with a hint of lead pencil. In the mouth the 14,5 abv. goes unnoticed as elegance supremes over power. It combines Margaux-like silky finesse with Pessac-Léognan spiciness, the latter especially in the impressively long finish. Moreover it's amazing value. — 9 months ago

Grand Vin de Leoville du Marquis de las Cases Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

2005. Portobello, loamy soil, blackberry, black cherry, violets, oyster shell, black peppercorn, grilled beef on the nose. Black and red currant, slight grapiness, cedar bark, pencil, black olive, wheat toast, fine tabac, clove, red cherry. Pointy in places, but really holding together in terms of age.

Château Pichon-Longueville Baron

Baron de Pichon-Longueville Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

2010 Bordeaux zoom tasting with Lisa Perrott-Brown, editor in chief for RP Wine Advocate. The wines have been shut down, some waking up...big wines with volume turned up on everything (tannin, acidity, alcohol), structured, and should cellar for many years.

@Shay A . Check out Robert Parker a matter of taste website for updates. They hold terrific live events (NY, Napa, etc). But, recently doing zoom events...2010 Bordeaux and Rhone valley before this. Also, check out Decanter events (most for Europe..darn). But for US, doing a taped zoom tasting....Verite: evolution of a decade.. 2008 vintage and 2018 vintage tasting kit of the 6 wines and watch tasting with Pierre Seillan & Helena Seillan. Cheers!

Château Mouton Rothschild

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1988

Overshadowed by the Las Cases. Not as good as the '85 I had recently, but definitely one of my favorite vintages — a year ago

Le Petit Lion de Marquis de Las Cases Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2018

Couldn’t help myself and wanted to try this in its youth. After a considerable time time to air, the glass opens up to bramble fruit, strawberry, oak, and eucalyptus. Nice lingering finish, great acidity that’s balanced , with Jammy fruits on the palate. 14.5%, this is a big boy. — 5 months ago

Schrader Cellars

T6 Beckstoffer To-Kalon Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

I can see the 💯 rating from Parker, still needs a couple years for the nose to get there. The old Sparky & Las Piedras stood out a bit more, less fruit & more complexity

Coming from the Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard, block D2 planted to clone 6, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon T6 sports a deep garnet-purple color and fantastically fragrant nose of Sichuan pepper, unsmoked cigars, potpourri, red loam and forest floor over a core of black forest cake, blackberry preserves and baked plums plus touches of dried Mediterranean herbs and smoked meats. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is full-on seductive, with wonderfully perfumed layers emerging through the frame of very finely knit yet firm tannins, finishing with epic length and depth. 286 cases produced.

Cape Mentelle

Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

Similar to the note I made a year ago in August 2020. Aromas of dried herbs, bay leaf, tomato bush with a woody note (not Oak) which we identified as Walnut similar to the previous note. This Cabernet is slightly different to the northern Margaret River (Wilyabrup) Cabernets like Woodlands and Moss Wood. On the Medium plus bodied palate red and black fruits with currants and mulberries. This was from a good vintage and is currently in a great place. Enjoy a bottle if you have any. POSTSCRIPT: A note by James Halliday from the Cape Mentelle International Cabernet Tasting in 2010 , for the 2007 vintage - “the trio of Cape Mentelle, Moss Wood and Woodlands pushed Leoville Las Cases and Chateau Margaux out of contention. “ Admittedly 2007 was not a great year in Bordeaux. — 10 months ago
