2009 Léoville-Las Cases, St-Julien

SKU #1120305 99 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Amazing aromas of cep mushrooms, dark fruits and fresh flowers, follow through to a full body and super velvety tannins with a long long finish. Gorgeous structure to this. Sexy and almost decadent. Inner quote mark (2/2012)

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Medium to deep garnet colored, the 2009 Léoville Las Cases rocks up with a drop-dead gorgeous nose of baked blackberries, warm plums and crème de cassis with suggestions of violets, rose hip tea, dark chocolate, menthol and sandalwood. Full-bodied, rich, concentrated and decadent in the mouth, it has super ripe, fine-grained tannins and seamless freshness, finishing very long and exotic. (LPB) Inner quote mark (3/2019)

98 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark A beautifully structured wine, with its tannins layered between the ripest black plums, damsons and black currants. It is opulent while remaining dense, concentrated and very serious. Certainly a wine for long-term aging. *Top Cellar Selection of 2012* (RV) Inner quote mark (4/2012)

98 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This is gorgeously layered with cassis bush, anise, roasted fig and plum reduction notes all framed by racy espresso and graphite. Very deep and very long, with terrific intensity on the finish thanks to razor cut from the seemingly endless iron spine. With its purity and precision, this mineral-driven Cabernet should cruise for two decades. *Collectibles* (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2012)

97 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Being Léoville-Las Cases, it is, as you would expect, still pretty determined to play its cards close to its chest. And yet the exuberance and generosity of 2009 is beginning to peep though. For those of us who lack patience, these kind of years are just brilliant for checking out what Las Cases is all about: brooding tannins are just starting to stir, controlling a tight-knit cassis, cigar box, pencil lead and liquorice body. You feel the skill in the unpeeling of the tannins, opening to reveal the perky fresh core, and you can see just why this is such a great estate. Drinking window 2022 - 2040 (JA) Inner quote mark (2/2019)

97 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2009 Léoville Las-Cases simply delivers on the nose with intense blackberry, wild hedgerow, graphite and crushed stone aromas on the nose. You would put this down as a Pauillac if served blind, unsurprising given that it borders that appellation. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, silky smooth in texture with immense depth. It is blessed with quite brilliant delineation and the precision on the finish is magnificent. Chapeau Mon. Delon. Tasted at BI Wines & Spirits Ten Year On tasting. (NM) Inner quote mark (3/2019)

95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Brilliant medium ruby. Brooding, medicinal aromas of cassis, blueberry, exotic spices and sexy oak. Large-scaled, dense and deep, with superconcentrated dark fruit and spice flavors given definition by strong acidity. Hugely rich but impeccably balanced Saint-Julien wine with a great, slowly building finish featuring a boatload of harmonious, noble, fully ripe tannins. This endless, subtle wine is at first growth level in 2009. (ST) 95+ Inner quote mark (7/2012)

76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc. Sexy wine. Red currant flavors. Power and elegance together. Tons of lush, decadent fruit. K&L's Ralph Sands adds, "All of the above, with a powerful strike on the palate and great freshness!"
