Performing better from bottle than it did from cask, this blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, and 11% Cabernet Franc has put on weight over the last year. It exhibits the classic style of both Las Cases and St.-Julien in its deep black currant notes interwoven with sweet cherries, wet stones, and toasty vanillin. Made in a structured, medium to full-bodied style with superb concentration, beautiful purity, and admirable symmetry, this beauty is one of the strongest efforts of the vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2028.
Robert Parker (Wine Advocate #171, Jun 2007)
The 2004 Léoville–Las Cases has the tough job of following the 2005. It offers black fruit mixed with sous-bois, smoke and sage aromas, now moving into its secondary stage but without the intensity of great vintages like 2005 or 2010. The palate is well balanced, with off-dry tannin. Classic in style, fresh and poised, leading to a lovely, quite sensual finish that leaves you wishing for another sip. Very fine.
Dark red, paling rim, youthful; dense, freshly ripe, aromatic, but undeveloped nose; rich, fairly full bodied wine, generous in fruit, with a fresh acidity and firm, fine tannin; both ripe and ‘gravelly’ in flavour, long across the palate, complex, aromatic, fine, and with excellent length; a complete, without being a grand, Las Cases. Needs time, will be very satisfying.
