A classic Las Cases with masses of mineral, floral and blueberry character. Full and chewy, with so much power. It’s just opening now. - James Suckling

This wine has put on weight and, as impressive as it was from cask, it is even more brilliant from bottle. Only 35% of the crop made it into the 2000 Leoville Las Cases, a blend of 76.8% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14.4% Merlot, and 8.8% Cabernet Franc. The wine is truly profound, with an opaque purple color and a tight but promising nose of vanilla, sweet cherry liqueur, black currants, and licorice in a dense, full-bodied, almost painfully rich, intense style with no hard edges. This seamless classic builds in the mouth, with a finish that lasts over 60 seconds. Still primary, yet extraordinarily pure, this compelling wine, which continues to build flavor intensity and exhibit additional layers of texture, is a tour de force in winemaking and certainly one of the great Leoville Las Cases. In another sense, it symbolizes / pays homage to proprietor Michel Delon, who passed away in 2000. Michel has been succeeded by his son, Jean-Hubert, another perfectionist. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2040. - Robert Parker, Wine Advocate

77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Cabernet Franc, 9% Merlot. An authentic expression of Las Cases, with its powerful Pauillac-meets-St-Julien character. Tight black fruit dominates, then tobacco, graphite, undergrowth and cedar. The tertiary notes float and hover, then the layers come. - Decanter
