Let yourself go and sink into this deep dark chasm that will swallow you whole if you let it. Enormous concentration, but every bit as much finesse, the finish extremely long and fine. And this is just beginning to give...

If you like great Cuban Cigars, the nose here has your name on it. From there, add forest floor, leaf, red fruits, spice, flowers and a waft of smoke. Full-bodied, powerful, graceful and concentrated, this is a perfect...

Luscious vintage that allows even Las Cases to be generous and almost hedonistic at 14 years old, almost unheard of with this property (helped by slightly higher level of alcohol than usual filling out the mouthfeel)...

Still a baby, the 2009 Château Leoville Las Cases is largely in the mold of the 1990 and 1982, offering a sexy opulence while staying in the classic, structured style of the estate. Based on 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15%...

Wine Enthusiast, April 2012

A beautifully structured wine with its tannins layered between the ripest black plums damsons and black currants. It is opulent while remaining dense concentrated and very serious. Certainly a wine for long-term aging.

Wine Spectator, March 2012

This is gorgeously layered with cassis bush anise roasted fig and plum reduction notes all framed by racy espresso and graphite. Very deep and very long with terrific intensity on the finish thanks to razor cut from the...

Decanter, February 2019

Being Léoville-Las Cases, it is, as you would expect, still pretty determined to play its cards close to its chest. And yet the exuberance and generosity of 2009 is beginning to peep though. For those of us who lack...

Neal Martin's Wine Journal, July 2013

Served blind at the Southwold 2009 tasting. Two bottles tasted in different flights. The Chateau Leoville Las-Cases 2009 appears to have closed down a little in recent months. Here, it has a very controlled bouquet with...

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, August 2022

The 2009 Léoville Las Cases is aging very gracefully, exhibiting all the plenitude and generosity of the vintage without any of its potential excesses. Offering up aromas of sweet cassis, loamy soil, cigar wrapper, spices...

Vinous, December 2023

The 2009 Léoville Las Cases is poured blind and just soars in the glass. What stunned me was the tension and precision on the nose, tropes that I do not find with many Left Bank wines in this vintage. It has fabulous...

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.

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.

The 2009 Leoville-Las Cases is a Bordeaux Blend from the prestigious St Julien region of Bordeaux, France. This red wine is a true masterpiece, showcasing the elegance and complexity that Bordeaux wines are known for.

In the glass, the wine displays a deep, rich red color that is visually captivating. The nose is equally enchanting, with aromas of sweet cassis, loamy soil, cigar wrapper, spices, and a touch of classy new oak. These aromas combine to create a symphony of scents that entice and intrigue.

On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, with a broad and enveloping texture. The layered core of fruit is framed by fine, powdery tannins, which add structure and balance to the wine. The finish is long and beautifully defined, leaving a lasting impression.

Critics have been unanimous in their praise for the 2009 Leoville-Las Cases. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate awarded it an impressive score of 97, noting its plenitude and generosity without any excesses. James Suckling gave it a staggering 99 points, describing it as a wine that demands your attention and will only get better with time. Other esteemed publications like Wine Spectator, Wine Enthusiast, and Decanter have also given it high scores, praising its concentration, structure, and aging potential.

This wine is a true testament to the skill and craftsmanship of the Leoville-Las Cases winery. It is a Bordeaux blend that showcases the best characteristics of the region, with its refined elegance, complexity, and ability to age gracefully. Whether enjoyed now or cellared for future enjoyment, the 2009 Leoville-Las Cases is a wine that will delight and impress even the most discerning wine connoisseur.
