Château Léoville-Las Cases

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

Nose has ripe blueberries, ripe mulberries, crushed blackberries, lacquered wood, damp slate, overly humidified cigar and a touch of cedar.

Palate has blackcurrant, blackberry, black cherry, dried cherry, graphite, iron and cigar ash. Tannins are medium, actually lighter than anticipated, and quite enjoyable. Lots to like on the nose and palate with this youthful Bordeaux.

45% Merlot / 42% Cabernet Sauvignon / 13% Cabernet Franc

Decanted 4H at the time of notes. Drink 2025-2038.

A second label from our favorite Left Bank producer, a wine I've been searching to find for many years and finally landed one in Chicago last year (2021).

Paired to Merlot steaks (Kinderhook Farm; Valatie, NY) and recently dug Carola potatoes from our garden tossed in butter and garden herbs, both finished with flakey Maldon salt.

That would be Left Bank Severn. I love las Cases as well. Most years the Grand Vin is equal to the First Growths.

Château Léoville-Las Cases

Grand Vin de Leoville du Marquis de las Cases Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Delectable Wine
9.3

The bottle of 1982 Léoville Las-Cases was sadly out of condition, though fortunately I tasted another example at a private dinner in Bordeaux a few weeks later. To be honest, I have always preferred the 1985 or 1986 to this vintage, and this gives me no reason to change my mind. It has a surliness on the nose that is uncharacteristic of this vintage, tightly wound tertiary scents, melted tar and pencil shavings. The palate is full-bodied with fine grip, dense and quite powerful, yet it is more impressive than pleasurable. The aforementioned vintages have pulled away from the 1982 in recent years, though it remains a very fine Saint-Julien. It just needs to turn its frown upside down. Tasted at the 1982 Dinner at Hatched. (Neal Martin, Vinous, September 2022)
