Intense aromas of currant blackberry and light vanilla. Full-bodied with velvety tannins and a long caressing finish. Layered with everything in the right proportion for the vintage. Excellent.

It is rich and concentrated with dark tannins that lie over the ripe jammy fruit and black rich chocolate flavors. Acidity and wood are there but only just hints after the richness of the fruit. A real magnificent aging wine.

Performing better from bottle than it did from cask this blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon 13% Merlot and 11% Cabernet Franc has put on weight over the last year. It exhibits the classic style of both Las Cases and St.-Julien in its deep black currant notes interwoven with sweet cherries wet stones and toasty vanillin. Made in a structured medium to full-bodied style with superb concentration beautiful purity and admirable symmetry this beauty is one of the strongest efforts of the vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2028. Also tasted: 2004 Clos du Marquis (88)

Supple but a bit youthfully inky with a dusty quality to the moderately sweet fruit. This is a bit dry compared to the young 2006 and one has the impression that the oak tannins are less successfully integrated with the wine's fruit. This concentrated persistent wine really needs seven or eight years of cellaring. 90+

The Grand Vin is the product of exceptional terroirs from the heart of the original Leoville estate. These are located mainly in the Clos Leoville-Las Cases, which you pass as you leave the village of Saint-Julien for Pauillac. They extend over nearly 60 hectares producing Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc with a complex, polished expression and characteristics which are totally unique to the Grand Vin of Las Cases.

Winery

Leoville-Las Cases

One of the oldest Medoc estates, Domaine de Leoville belonged to some of the wealthiest and most influential noble French families before it was acquired by the Las Cases family. Like many properties after the French Revolution, the estate was divided between 1826 and 1840 into the three Leovilles we know today: Leoville-Las Cases, Leoville-Poyferre and Leoville-Barton.

Chateau Leoville-Las Cases was created, thanks to a kind of birthright, from three-fifths of the original estate, including the very heart of the property. The Grand Vin has therefore been sourced from the best part of the original terroir since the 17th century.

Pierre Jean, Adolphe, and Gabriel de Las Cases were successive heirs to the property until 1900, when Theophile Skawinski purchased a share in the estate and became its manager. Leoville-Las Cases has now been managed by the same family since the late 19th century and is today represented by Jean-Hubert Delon, sole owner of the chateau and proprietor of Chateau Potensac in the Medoc and Chateau Nenin in Pomerol.
