Reviews

Wine Advocate

98+ Points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate: "Composed of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc and 6% Merlot, the medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Léoville Las Cases has a slightly closed nose, revealing notes of crème de cassis, baked blueberries and black forest cake with touches of licorice, violets and Indian spices plus a waft of dusty soil. The palate is medium to full-bodied, concentrated and built like a brick house, with firm, ripe, velvety tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long and spicy." 4/18

Neil Martin

96 Points, Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: " Bottled in July 2017, the 2015 Leoville-Las Cases is a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc and 6% Merlot cropped at 39 hectoliters per hectare. It has an arresting bouquet, very intense with blackberry, blueberry and oyster shell aromas, becoming more floral with aeration with hints of crushed violet developing. This is quite a "punchy" bouquet that demands your attention. The palate is medium-bodied with svelte tannin, a fine line of acidity, very impressive tension and an involving, mineral-driven finish (you can feel the tongue tingling after the wine has departed). It will require at least a decade in bottle, but it will be worth the wait. Anticipated maturity: 2025 - 2050. " 2/18

Antonio Galloni

98 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: "The 2015 Léoville Las Cases is simply captivating. Sumptuous, racy and explosive in the glass, the 2015 is endowed with tremendous energy from start to finish. An exotic melange of crème de cassis, graphite, menthol and licorice bursts onto the palate as the 2015 shows off its alluring personality. Spectacularly rich, dense and full-throttle, with huge tannins that are nearly buried underneath the fruit, the 2015 is an unusual Las Cases. It is also breathtakingly beautiful. Readers who can find it should not miss it. " 2/18
