Tasted at Bordeaux Index's annual 10-Year On tasting in London and then blind at Farr Vintners horizontal, the 2006 Château Léoville Las-Cases has a very complex bouquet with heady scents of blackcurrant, kirsch, crushed violets, rock salt and just a hint of cassis. It is backward and can barely contain its energy. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, very symmetrical and poised, a fine line of acidity interwoven through the black fruit, touches of citrus fruit developing towards the poised and tensile finish. This is a beautiful wine from Jean-Hubert Delon, but it needs several years in bottle. Tasted April 2016. - Neal Martin

Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, February 2009
Offers a pure nose of crushed raspberry and violet with aniseed. Full-bodied with beautiful well-integrated tannins and a long polished texture to the finish. Very beautiful. Harmonious and structured. Best after 2015. -JS

Brooding aromas of cassis black cherry minerals bitter chocolate shoe polish and violet; more Pauillac than Saint-Julien on the nose. Then rich lush and powerful with impressive fullness and volume. As full and sweet as this is there's no impression of excess weight and the back end shows a distinctly austere quality even if the serious tannins are nicely buffered by the wine's rich middle. Really stains the palate with flavor on the aftertaste. Wonderfully ripe cabernet sauvignon here; in fact most of the cab franc in 2006 was declassified into the Clos du Marquis. 94 points
