Tasting Notes and Scores

Blended of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc, the deep garnet colored 2010 Léoville Las Cases delivers tons of evolving black fruits on the nose with notes of crème de cassis, prunes and incense plus wafts of cloves, cedar, cigar box and powdered cinnamon. Full-bodied, rich, bold and decadently fruited, it has a solid frame of grainy tannins, and the oak is faintly notable on the palate. It finishes impressively with long-lingering mineral notes. This one probably needs 3-5 more years to really hit its stride! LPB

The 2010 is a quintessentially elegant, classic wine of Bordeaux – firm, rigid, perhaps slightly lighter than most of the other St.-Juliens, but stylish, potentially complex, and reminiscent of the style of the 1986, but more concentrated and powerful. It is a blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc with a normal pH of 3.56. It was raised in 75% new oak and the alcohol came to 13.7%. This wine displays loads of black currants, cedar wood and vanillin, but needs a good 7-8 years of cellaring, if not much longer. It should last for 30+ years. 96+pts

Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux 2010 tasting. The Leoville Las-Cases 2010 has a very elegant bouquet with earthy, tobacco infused black fruit, fine delineation and well-integrated oak. It is tight at first, but opens nicely in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with a gentle grip on the entry. Very fine tannins, very elegant and harmonious with beautifully judged acidity leading to a classic finish that is totally seductive. Glorious. Tasted January 2014.

2nd Growth St Julien (36.7hl/ha, 13.7%) [82CS/10M/8CF] Dense in ripe fruit to smell, with that clear 2010 freshness and delineation of impression, here too you notice the spicy edge of Cabernet Franc, as in the Clos du Marquis. Rich, fresh, vital, tannic, but a firmly fine tannin; a sinewy yet refined wine, close knit, rectilinear, long, sweet cored, complex and all the while vivid, and with tremendous scented length. Not the absolute easy harmony of the 2009 (retasted alongside) but with more immediate impact, more power, more intensity; a penetrating, complex wine, full of both ripe fruit and intense minerality, exhaustingly good; power and elegance, a very Pauillac expression of St Julien! As with the Clos du Marquis this is great Las Cases - 86, 96 and 06 come to mind. A more masculine, more concentrated expression of the terroir than its very fine 09, if likely to be much less flattering to taste for a long time. Both are First Growth quality, with the 2010 perhaps just a tad ahead? The difference in style is clearer than any difference in quality. 2022-40+ [M.Schuster, Bordeaux Mar/Apr 2011]

The aromas to this wine have a beautiful purity of raspberries, blueberries, currants, and flowers that follow to a a full body, with super integrated tannins that are like the finest silk in texture. It shows elegant and pretty fruit character and a reserve and finesse of such great years as 1989 and 1995. The bright strong acidity gives a crunchy and creamy texture. This has a tiny bit more Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend than 2009. Give it at least six to eight years of bottle age.
