Château Leoville las Cases 2017 Saint Julien Deuxième Cru Classé 12 x 75cl 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot and 11% Cabernet Franc.
Very dark with black core. This invites you in but doesn't say much in terms of aroma. It is dark, intense and sober at heart but with flashes of colour to suggest a future revelation. Super-fine texture, so much finer than I remember earlier vintages, especially at this young age. Seems almost delicate already but has amazing and effortless concentration. Already elegant. And unexpectedly juicy on the finish. Very very long. Fruit purity persists to the end. (JH)
