Chateau Leoville Las Cases

France > Bordeaux > Médoc

Even the 2000 is regarded as 'a baby' and will not reach perfection for years yet. Experts expect this to improve until 2035.

Once described as 'one of the most complete wines in the world', every nuance can be enjoyed. If you are going to drink it, make sure you decant it for at least five hours. Pleasingly, the bases of the bottles are laser etched to deter fraud. Wait for its tannins to resolve and greatness awaits.
