2005 Saint-Julien from Bordeaux

Chateau Leoville Las Cases is one of the oldest vineyards in the Medoc region. The 55 ha (135.9 acres) terroir is boarded with a stone wall. The 2005 Chateau Leoville Las Cases is 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, and 5% Cabernet Franc.

The exceptional red wine from Saint-Julien appellation displays a violet-tinted, dense ruby hue. The bouquet impresses with pure black fruit notes, wet rocks, graphite, as wells as subtle toasted hints, and vanilla. This full-bodied and very deep vintage from Bordeaux is in line with legendary releases from Chateau Leoville Las Cases. Will peak between 2023 and 2050.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
This is a prodigious effort. A blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon and the balance Merlot and Cabernet Franc (only 37% of the crop qualified for Las Cases), this dense ruby/purple wine has a stunningly pure bouquet of dark fruit, wet rocks, graphite, and subtle background toast/vanillin. Full-bodied, masculine, and very deep and concentrated, this titanic effort is at least 8-10 years away from its plateau of maturity. The Delon family have produced another legend. Anticipated maturity: 2023-2050+.
