Winemaker's Notes

(From 2004 Vintage) "The estate, under the same ownership as Léoville-las-Cases in Saint-Julien, shows what can be achieved in the Médoc when care is taken. It is big, round, solid and structured, with complexity coming from dark, sweet fruits and new wood. It is rich and powerful, the aging potential showing from a core of dry tannin."

    Expert Ratings Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 90 points Wine Spectator: 88 points Rated: 90 by Stephen Tanzer, May/Jun 08 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar Medium red. Very ripe, sweet aromas of plum, mocha and bitter chocolate. Unusually sweet and supple for this wine, with lovely depth and volume to its cassis and chocolate flavors. Very St. Estephe in style. Finishes powerful, sweet and long, with the unusually fine tannins arriving late. An outstanding performance for this chateau.

    (From 2000 Vintage) Rating: 4/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Classic cassis/cedar Medoc bouquet, quite dry and restrained. Fine fruit and good elegant wine, shows elegance, depth and finesse. Drink 2-10 years.
