It shows intense aromas of berries currants and minerals with hints of mint. Full-bodied and packed with fruit and tannins its long finish is refined and silky. A benchmark for the vintage. Las Cases has always wanted to make first-growth quality in a top notch vintage and it certainly did in 2000. Best after 2012. 15000 cases made. (JS)

This wine has put on weight and as impressive as it was from cask it is even more brilliant from bottle. Only 35% of the crop made it into the 2000 Leoville Las Cases a blend of 76.8% Cabernet Sauvignon 14.4% Merlot and 8.8% Cabernet Franc. The wine is truly profound with an opaque purple color and a tight but promising nose of vanilla sweet cherry liqueur black currants and licorice in a dense full-bodied almost painfully rich intense style with no hard edges. This seamless classic builds in the mouth with a finish that lasts over 60 seconds. Still primary yet extraordinarily pure this compelling wine which continues to build flavor intensity and exhibit additional layers of texture is a tour de force in winemaking and certainly one of the great Leoville Las Cases. In another sense it symbolizes / pays homage to proprietor Michel Delon who passed away in 2000. Michel has been succeeded by his son Jean-Hubert another perfectionist. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2040.
