75 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 15 % Merlot und 11 % Cabernet Franc. Ertrag: Mit 40 hl/ha etwas höher als 2015, aber weniger Grand Vin als 2015: 65 % ohne Clos du Marquis. Tiefes Purpur mit violettem Rand. Konzentrierte  assisnase, dahinter Pumpernickel und edle Würze sowie Veilchen aufsteigend, im zweiten Ansatz kommen dunkle Edelhölzer zum Vorschein. Am Gaumen mit seidiger Textur, das ist pure St.-Julien-Klasse – une beauté par excellence! Im Finale zeigt er eine unglaubliche Länge mit grosser Eleganz. Ganz grosser las-Cases, der in der perfekten Trinkreife die Maximalnote erreichen kann. Für mich die Nr. 1 in St.-Julien!  - Wein Wisser


The 2016 Leoville-Las Cases comprises 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot and 11% Cabernet Franc picked between 30 September and 19 October, during which the harvesters were out in the vines for 16 days. It is matured in 90% new oak and delivers 13.60% alcohol and an IPT of 82. It is initially tightly coiled on the nose and needed coaxing from the glass. There are scents of small black cherries, boysenberry, crushed violets and a slight flintiness that emerges with time. The definition is very impressive—you can almost pick the aromas out one by one. The palate is awe-inspiring. The tannins are so filigree, in fact not dissimilar to their neighbor across the border at Château Latour. That seam of graphite lends this Léoville Las-Cases a Pauillac-like personality, but ignoring stylistic similarities, it is the intensity, depth and arching structure that astounds, with detail on the finish that rivets your feet to the spot. Then the finish is ultra-precise, one of the most mineral-driven that I have encountered in almost 20 years visiting the estate, plus it is endowed with one the longest aftertastes you will find in 2016. Yeah, it's good.  - Neal Martin


Léoville Las Cases is usually a brutish, powerful wine, especially when young. The 2016, on the other hand, is a wine of total finesse. There is almost no sensation of tannin, even though the wine has the highest degree of tannin ever measured here. Sometimes wines can go from the merely outstanding into the realm of the sublime. That is very much the case with the 2016 Léoville Las Cases. I could describe the aromas and flavors, but that seems superfluous for a wine that delivers so much pure pleasure. Silky (yes, silky) tannins wrap around a super-expressive finish laced with the essence of blue/purplish fruit, crème de cassis, lavender and blueberry jam.  - Antonio Galloni


A brick house, with layers of cold charcoal, smoldering tobacco, warm cassis, dark plum and blueberry reduction flavors all working seamlessly together. The charcoal edge underscores the entire finish, which is focused and ridiculously long.—J.M.  - James Molesworth


Le meilleur jamais fait avec le 1982, le 1986 et le 1989.Couleur noire. Nez intense, fin, fruité, pur et floral à l'agitation. Grande entrée en bouche ample, puis le vin se développe très, très fruité, juteux, savoureux et complexe au milieu. Puis il fond, particulièrement tramé, sèveux, avec une grande profondeur de saveurs et un tantinet d'austérité.  - Jean-Marc Quarin


A unique Las Cases that harkens back to some of the great classics such as 1985 or 1986 with its solid backbone of tannins and a walnut, licorice and blackcurrant character. Full and powerful, characterized throughout by a steeliness that shows its strength and energy. Better than the 2015. Ultra-classic.  - James Suckling
