Passionate winemaker Michel Delon, who only selected the best grapes for its wines, declassified 50% of his crops in 1986 and 67% in 1990 in order to create one of the best wines of the Medoc. His son is now in charge of Leoville Las Cases following his father steps. Matured in oak barriques (70-80% new) for 18 months, their wines are traditional and require patience.
“This keeps on giving, with notes of grilled almonds and truffles. It’s still young, although with a carafe and a good plate of food you could open it now. The complexity is amazing: the charcoal, the depth of flavour, the yielding of the tannins. Overall, very impressive. Drink 2018-2048.” – 96 points, Jane Anson, Decanter September 2017
