Leoville-las-Cases-St-Julien-2009

Leoville las Cases, (St. Julien), 2009

The 2009 is one of the greatest Leoville Las Cases I have ever tasted! A final blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, and 9% Cabernet Franc. The medium/high alcohol is barely noticeable in this 2009, which boasts an inky/purple color, monumental concentration, and great clarity and purity of creme de cassis, black cherry, spice box, graphite, and wet rock characteristics. Extremely full-bodied with sweet tannin nearly concealed by the wine’s power, glycerin, and awesome fruit concentration, this intense effort never tastes heavy or tiring.
