En Primeur 2012 – Léoville-Las-Cases 2012 – cheapest vintage on the market

Arguably one of the best, if not the finest wines made in St.-Julien in 2012, certainly this is one of Robert Parker’s potential top scorers of the vintage. The brief price comparison in the table below shows this not only to be the cheapest Léoville-Las-Cases currently on the market but to offer a rough equivalent in quality or above compared to those vintages whose prices are is near it. We only have a very small allocation of this wine so if you would like to secure  a case please contact us as soon as possible.

Château Léoville Las Cases, 2eme Grand Cru Classé, Saint-Julien  –  £ 950 IB

LeovilleLasCasesThe seriously endowed 2012 Las Cases exhibits a dense purple colour as well as surprisingly sweet tannin and a forwardness that one does not normally find at this address. Medium to full-bodied with beautiful black currant, graphite, crushed rock and subtle oaky notes, it possesses lots of minerality and precision, impressive power, a rich mid-palate (which sets it apart from other St.-Juliens), and a long finish. It appears this beauty will be drinkable in 5-6 years, and last for 25 or more.     Robert Parker Junior

 74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot & 11% Cabernet Franc         13.5% alcohol
