Chateau Leoville Las Cases is one of the largest and oldest classified growths in the Medoc region of France. The fruit is harvested by hand. The fermentation vessels include a fascinating mix of wooden, cement and stainless steel vats. When finished the wine is pumped to the barrel cellar. Here it is transferred into oak barrique, between 50% and 100% new for the grand vin, depending on the vintage.

100 Points - Wine Spectator

Absolutely fantastic. This is one of the most exciting reds I have tasted in a long, long time. 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. 

98 Points - Robert Parker

Along with the Medoc first growths, Leoville Barton, Chateau Montrose, Sociando Mallet and a handful of other producers, Leoville Las Cases continues to make a wine meant for very long-term cellaring. When I did my earlier tastings of the 2000, my projected maturity dates were 2012-2040, but it is looking more like 2020-2050. This full-bodied blend of nearly 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14.4% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc still has a youthful ruby purple colour, notes of graphite, kirsch liqueur, black currants and lead pencil shavings, with good acidity, tell-tale purity, layered ripeness and intensity and a profound finish.
