Among the more tannic and backward wines of the vintage, the 2007 is another outstanding effort from this estate. Already somewhat closed, it is a candidate for one of the longest lived wines of the vintage. Beautifully pure black currant and black cherry fruit interwoven with notions of cedar and wood are found in this medium to full-bodied, structured, masculine-styled St.-Julien. The attack reveals sweetness and softness, but then the wine shuts down. It will benefit from 2-3 years of cellaring, and should keep for 15 or more.
Robert Parker (Wine Advocate #188, Apr 2010)
The 2007 Léoville–Las Cases has a classic Saint-Julien bouquet of black fruit infused with smoke and cigar humidor; savory and dried blood scents emerge with time. Complex if not as intense as the 2010 tasted alongside. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and fine acidity. Secondary notes of mushroom and sous-bois surface with time, and there is fine weight toward the finish, even if this is not the most persistent Las Cases in recent vintages. There is a splash of balsamic on the aftertaste. You could broach this now, although it will give another two decades of drinking pleasure. Tasted at the château.
