2000 Chateau Leoville-Las Cases 'Grand Vin de Leoville', Saint-Julien, France

AOC
Saint-Julien

TERROIR
The Grand Enclos de Las Cases is blessed with a very complex terroir. Mostly made up of Quaternary gravel on a sandy-gravelly and clayey-gravelly subsoil, we also find clays of varying depths and compactness, sometimes even outcropping. The proximity of the Gironde is responsible for this great diversity of soils, created over the geological periods by successive superimpositions. In addition, the river generates a very specific microclimate which allows the grapes to ripen very early and protects the vineyards from frost. This range of geological combinations influences the development of the vine and the constitution of the grapes. This incomparable terroir offers the great wine its unique personality.

VINTAGE 2020
After a rainy and mild winter, a wet and warm spring confirmed the general earliness that marked the beginning of 2020. Thereafter, the weather conditions became more
favourable to the smooth development of the vine and its fruits, even if we could deplore a lower volume than the previous year. With low rainfall from the second half of August onwards, as well as good temperature variations, the grapes showed ideal aromatic and phenolic ripeness at harvest. The Grand Vin de Léoville Las Cases is already particularly complete, fresh and elegant. With an extraordinary length, it combines tension with the
fullness of complex aromas and perfect ripeness.

Blend 81% Cabernet Sauvignon 11% Cabernet Franc 8% Merlot
Harvest period From 12th to 27th September 2020
Alcohol: 13.68% vol.
Total Acidity: 3.65 gH2SO4/l

Jeb Dunnuck

The 2000 Leoville Las Cases is another brilliant wine and, like most 2000s, appears to just now be at the early stages of its drink window. Smoky black fruits, crushed rocks, lead pencil, and menthol notes all emerge from this brilliant, blockbuster beauty that still tastes like it's just 5-6 years old. Beautifully concentrated, ripe, sexy, and seamless, it has the classic elegance and regal quality of this domaine front and center. It has another 3-4 decades of longevity. Reviewed by Jeb Dunnuck, Issue date: June 2019. Drinking window: 2019 - 2049.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate

The 2000 Léoville Las Cases takes time to unwind in the decanter and glass, but when it begins to show all its cards, the display is spectacular. Mingling aromas of dark berries and red fruits with aromas of pencil shavings, loamy soil, cedar box, bitter chocolate, dried rose petals and licorice, it's medium to full-bodied, deep and concentrated, with a layered, complete mid-palate that's rare in this vintage, powdery tannins and a long, resonant finish. An uncompromising classic, even as it closes in on its 22nd birthday, the 2000 Las Cases remains an infant in terms of evolution. Reviewed by William Kelley, Issue date: August 2022. Drinking window: 2025 - 2055.

Vinous

The 2000 Leoville Las Cases is a vintage that I have encountered a dozen or so times. Jean­ Hubert Delon oversaw a magnificent wine in this year. The nose of graphite-infused black fruit is still vivacious and very complex, very Pauillac-like, and supremely well focused. Hints of licorice develop with aeration. The medium-bodied palate features sappy black fruit and perfectly judged acidity. Complex and delineated, with marine-tinged mulberry and black currant notes given a deft Oriental touch on the finish. Bottles are only just beginning to drink perfectly now and will last another 30 or more years. Reviewed by Neal Martin, Issue date: June 2021. Drinking window: 2021 - 2050.
