K&L Notes

98 points Neal Martin for Vinous: "The 2016 Léoville Las-Cases underwent three more months in barrel than usual, and was bottled in September 2018. It has an extremely intense bouquet that manages to retain otherworldly delineation. It is not as expressive as its peers at this early stage (but then again, it rarely is). Yet there is palpable coiled-up energy on the nose, and you can feel the mineralité. The palate is medium-bodied with super-fine tannin and layers of pure black and blue fruit laced with allspice and a pinch of white pepper. It fans out wonderfully on the finish, which exerts fine grip but never overwhelms. This is undoubtedly one of the best wines ever made by the estate. Close to perfection." (01/2019)

    Just 13.6% alcohol on this-one of the best wines of the vintage. Surprise! Surprise! Chocolate and spice and everything nice on the nose. Totally integrated on the palate. Seamless and pure-lovely texture. Will age long time because of the balance. Almost perfect, but it won't be cheap!

    Once again the top property in the appellation turns out a classic iron fist in a velvet glove. This silky, elegant wine is deeply concentrated, impeccably balanced and the picture of finesse. A sleek, classy and intense wine poised on the cusp of perfection.
