2000 Leoville Las Cases Bordeaux Blend - France - Bordeaux - St Julien - Red - Second Growth

France - Bordeaux - St Julien

Red Bordeaux Blend - Second Growth
Producer Notes

The Second Growth classified estate of Leoville Las Cases continues to produce wines of exceptional quality, rivaling those of the First Growth producers. The wines are full-bodied, concentrated and complex, and have tremendous aging potential. Typical blends consist of over 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, with lesser amounts of Merlot and Cabernet Franc, and a small amount of Petit Verdot. Bargain... More »

Dark, opaque red core with very little variation towards the rim, for 12 years old the color shows like a wine that is 3 years old, very primary with no signs of browning. This might be the most intense black currant nose I have ever experienced in a wine, black cherry and blackberry a hint of blood sausage, oak, Lavender, crushed rocks, powerful and complex. The palate is an example of super balance, High acid, medium persistent tannin that lingers on the palate, massive fruit character. Very new world like yet balanced and complex. Plum, raspberry and sour cherry jump out of the glass, the wine lingers for at least 45 seconds on the finish. Still just a baby and needs 2-5 years to mellow down a little. Drink 2015- 202

consumed during the tasting of St Julien wines, from 1959 to 2000. Not as exciting as expected and was very different from other (albeit much older) wines. A la Californa, fruit too much forward, aggressive, no balance. Will approve with age as other Las Cases wines (the 1966 was the best at the tasting)?

From the blind tasting of Las cases, Barton and Poyferre of 2000, 1996, 1990 and 1982 at Acker. Best of the 2000s. Nose is very fruit forward and rich with cherry popping though. More on the nose than in the mouth. Hints of vanilla join the fruits and ample tannins.

Muted nose. Completely disjointed. Hint of fruit on entry then purely vegetal. Back end attempts to save it but there's really not much there. Have to give it another chance with another bottle. This cannot be a 100 point wine even if it has shut down.

Auction bottle, held about 8 months. Opened and left undisturbed for 12 hours before serving, shared with the Wine School of Philadelphia. The most complete wine I have yet tasted. Absolutely perfect, the nose was captivating for hours -- you just keep breathing it in until it consumes everything else in your mind. I left an angels share in the glass to come back to at the end of the long night. It never wavered from total perfection. A singular expression of incredible terrior, amazing fruit, and superb wine-making. With slow oxygenation, it was ready from the first pour and never faded. When you are ready to reference the standard for St. Julien wine, you can hardly do better than to offer this 2000 LLC. Served with an 83 Margaux and a 95 Latour which were extraordinary in their own right, for some this was the still the wine of the night. Of the year! Now I get it. Spectacular.

The Leoville Tasting
This was a tasting the the three properties that were separated at the turn of the century into Leoville Las Cases, Leoville Barton and Leoville Poyferre.  The tasting was blind and done by vintage.  Vintages tasted...

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
