En Primeur Chateau Leoville Las Cases 2016 is not yet released for sale. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and ask to be added to our En Primeur email list.
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.
“A unique las cases that harkens back to some of the great classics such as 1985 or 1986 with its solid backbone of tannins and a walnut, licorice and blackcurrant character. Full and powerful, characterized throughout by a steeliness that shows its strength and energy. Better than the 2015. Ultra-classic.” – 98-99pts, James Suckling April 2017
