2014 Château Léoville Las Cases
APR 13 Ruby. Red and darker berries, scented, bit tight nose. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, fresh, fruity. Tighter, bit lean, more tender LLC. Always one of the most difficult to taste primeur, but it is short this year. 89-91
2013 Le Petit Lion
APR 13 (2nd Ch. L. Las Cases) ruby. Scented. Spicy, floral and red berries nose. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, leaner, fresh, rounded, easy going. 85-87
MAY 15 Served blind. Ruby. Scented, red berries, fruity, bit off and actually somewhat weird first but sharpening up with air. Still not quite up to scratch. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, somewhat hollow, edgy, light herbal note. With more air it builds body and fruit, quite strange to see how much it gains, still on the firm side, long. Ads with even more air, needs an hour plus in decanter. 95
MAY 15 Ruby, thin garnet rim. Figs, cassis, cedar, scented, elegant nose, detailed, flirting. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, leaner, fresh, little bit drying, long if leaner finish. 91
MAY 16 Ruby, garnet rim. Cassis, blueberries, some eucalyptus and lifted notes, tobacco, leather. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, firm, cassis, leather, some spices, red berries, cherries, nuanced but tight, long. 94
