Smoky espresso and chocolate, oregano, black pepper and mint, graphite glittered wave of grill and cast iron, bacon residue, cassis nose. Palate of black pepper and kalamata olives, eucalyptus and bittering currant reduction.

One of my fave 00 Bdx wines. Presents perfectly with bright cherries and saddle leather on the nose, followed by graphite and black fruits on the mid palate. This will sail on for years since the tannins and acidity are still very prominent. Unbeatable 2nd wine from Las Cases. — 18 days ago
Made by the same guys who operate Léoville Poyferré, they definitely know how to make a great blend. Their 2010 Grand Vin is perhaps my favourite Argentinean wine. It slightly lacks the depth and lushness of its bigger brother but it offers excellent value for the price. Notes of dark chocolate, coffee, cedar, oak, plum with hints of vanilla. Smooth acidity and tannins on the palate. Great Bordeaux style wine from Mendoza. — 5 years ago
First time I opened one of these 1.5 years ago it was totally closed. Now it’s back open for business and lovely. If blindfolded, based on the perfume alone I would have guessed a Margaux like Palmer as it threw off tons of violets, graphite and blue fruits - gorgeous but a tinge of rough edge that blew off after about an hour. Palate still tasted young but had the complexity you look for in an older claret - spice, leather, graphite, blue fruits and a long finish. This is in a great drinking window but easily has decades of life ahead of it. — 12 days ago
Wow! Fully mature Bordeaux is one of my favorites. Aromatics of dark black and blue fruits of blackberry, blueberry. Mid palate of leather, tobacco, saddle leather, spice. Long finish of more than a minute. Still young and viable. Nice big boy who takes charge and names. This is a great wine! — 2 years ago
Château Léoville Las Cases ‘La Petite Marquise’ Saint-Julien 2018: Medium-full bodied. Medium-high acidity. Noticeable tannins that mellowed out over time. Deep purple in color. Tasting notes of blackberry, plum, strawberry, cedar & oak. Smooth warm finish. All in all, a rich & delicious Saint-Julien wine however very worthy of additional years of cellaring. Be well wine friends! Cheers 🇫🇷🍷 — 15 days ago

Day 3: Big, black chocolate nose, with baked blackberry, black olives, and charred beef ribs charging from the glass. The floodgates have finally opened, and it was worth the wait! There is fresh cocoa bean pods and a jungle of flora; rosemary and iris extracts and an oatmeal raisin aspect to the perfuming.
Just the right texture for the pungent hothouse welcome: grippy and coarse, with a bitter chocolate and raspberry interplay, and a single unforgettable graphite and smoky slate backbone; unwavering in the churn of black currant, pepper, eucalyptus, leather and tobacco. Léoville Poyferré's high octane new world Malbec that puts a LOT of stick about! It also has an elegance, as all good dominatrixes should! You'll get a kick out of this! #LéovillePoyferré #bordeauxandburgers #argentinawine #Argentina #malbec #malbecmalbec #newworldmeetsoldworld #CuvelierLosAndes #andes #grandmalbec #ucovalley #uco #mendoza — 5 years ago
