Tasted at Bordeaux Index's annual 10-Year On tasting in London and then blind at Farr Vintners horizontal, the 2006 Château Léoville Las-Cases has a very complex bouquet with heady scents of blackcurrant, kirsch, crushed violets, rock salt and just a hint of cassis. It is backward and can barely contain its energy. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, very symmetrical and poised, a fine line of acidity interwoven through the black fruit, touches of citrus fruit developing towards the poised and tensile finish. This is a beautiful wine from Jean-Hubert Delon, but it needs several years in bottle. Tasted April 2016.

Tasting note


This 2006 vintage from the esteemed Saint-Julien appellation is a testament to the exceptional terroir of the former Léoville estate. The wine is a harmonious blend, dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, which contributes to its complex and polished expression. With a powerful and mouth-filling presence, the wine is structured with concentrated tannins that promise a remarkable evolution. Behind the wall of creamy tannins lies a purity of fruit that lingers, indicating a wine of high quality that will continue to unfold with time. Decanting for two hours is recommended to allow the wine to express its full range of flavors, which will pair exquisitely with robust dishes such as grilled lamb chops or Beef Wellington.
