This second wine from Château Léoville-Las Cases has excellent potential

Already a powerful wine, this is packed with vibrant red cherry and plum flavours, and underpinned by hints of anise, black pepper and cedarwood. The tannins are firm and the palate is seductive even now but promises to open up further with time.

Tasting notes

This second wine comes from young vines at the excellent Château Léoville-Las Cases estate. Although a little young, this wine still shows immense elegance and a sense of what is to come, once it is allowed to age for another ten years or more. Dense, dark berry fruit notes and a seam of toasted vanilla oak combine with tobacco and a trace of minerality.
