    December 15, 2018 - Nuuk weekend; 12/13/2018-12/16/2018: What a wine! It’s young but incredibly savory and complex. Classic Bordeaux elements. Inky dark fruit, hanged meat, lead pencil shavings, a bit of smoke and roasted coffee beans. Dens fruit on the palate but lovely balanced acidity and length.

    October 6, 2018 - Drank from a 375. Tart red fruit dominates which surprised me. This is my first Las Cases. Red current, cranberry, lots of graphite, if I was to be given this blind I might have guessed a high quality Sangiovese. Really good and I can see why petiole are saying to open this a decade from now. The tannins are beautiful and fine, the acid is high, and there isn’t a hint of age except for the fact that the tannins don’t rip your mouth out like my experience was on the release of the 2014’s(my first grand Bordeaux vintage tasting) I give this an A- but would love to see where it goes in a decade or three.

    December 22, 2017 - I 2014-årgangen er det hele 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Cabernet Franc og med 10% Merlot-druer. 85% av fatene er nye.

    Vinen har en mørkere dyp rød kjerne på farge.

    På nesen er vinen intens, dyp, kompleks og allikevel greier den å opptre forførende og elegant. Vinen har en skikkelig fin nerve med mørkere litt parfymerte kirsebær, noe kjølige plommer, et sting av lakris, noe vanilje og en kryddertone i flere lag.

    Vinen er konsentrert og dyp på paletten, men er mer som en feminin dronning som selvsikkert tar seg elegant fram og stiller seg fremst på balkongen uten å opptre for brutal og stor. Vinen har nesten en kremete tekstur med tanniner som er så softe og silkepreget at det er til å smile av. Her er det mørkere solbær, litt syrlige kirsebær, et nydelig hint av mint, noe urter og litt fattoner på en lang og mektig utgang. Dette var virkelig en kompleks og herlig vin som vil være helt strålende om 15-20 års tid. Flott vin! www.botti.no

    November 27, 2017 - Opened the bottle with Montrose 2014 still in mind.
    Compared, considerably more closed.
    Nose shows hughe potential.
    Powerful red fruit at first, some metallic notes later on.
    Palate very closed, strong tannins, juicy, earthy.
    Can't say whether it takes 10 or 20 years for this to reach full potential, but I will check back here for the reviews in a few years...probably up to 95-96...

    July 12, 2017 - One of the top wines from the 2014 vintage, the color shows a deep ruby hue. Aromatically you find cassis, lead pencil and forest floor notes already. On the palate, the full bodied wine delivers round tannins, fresh red fruits and a nice bite of juicy cassis in the end note. The freshness, with a leafy component is a really nice sensation in the finish. For a good quality vintage of Leoville Las Cases, this will drink well relatively young, meaning that perhaps just a decade or slightly more will be ample time for the wine to open and offer its complexities.
