Situated next to Château Latour, Château Léoville Las Cases is less expensive than first growths but often equal in quality, as once observed by Robert Parker.

Tasting Notes

"Better than many of the Medoc first-growths, the 2013 Las Cases was harvested relatively late, between October 2 and 17. It is a blend of 74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc. Only 40% of the production made it into the grand vin, and the finished alcohol was 13.1%. It reveals a dense ruby/purple color, supple tannins, good texture and depth, excellent freshness and intense dark currant and black cherry fruit notes. While not a blockbuster, it is a medium-bodied, well-endowed 2013 that should drink well for 10-15 years." - Robert Parker Jr, The Wine Advocate (8/27/2014, Issue 214), Ratings: 89-92+, Drink: 2014-2029
