The history of the Domaine de Léoville dates back to 1604, when the Domaine de Léoville, facing the Gironde, was at the time one of the most important properties of the Medoc. The vineyard was owned by the wealthiest and most influential French noble families in the region. After the Revolution, the estate of Léoville was divided into several parcels. Chateau Leoville Las Cases is born as a result of this reshuffle. For decades, Château Léoville Las Cases is run by the same family. Today, Jean-Hubert Delon, sole owner, is the representative of the family tradition.


Chateau Leoville-Las Cases

Tasting Notes

Notes of kirsch, blackberry preserves and blackcurrant pastilles with underlying scents of star anise, cumin seed, potpourri, oolong tea and tobacco leaf plus a waft of incense. The elegant palate explodes with a myriad of exotic spice, floral and dried berries notes, framed by soft tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long and with impeccable poise and sophistication.






Elegant, ageworthy red, Fine Wine





Unit Size



69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot and 12% Cabernet Franc.

Press Review

"The 2001 Léoville Las Cases is a vintage I’ve encountered many times. Now at two decades old, it has a generous nose with those black plums still in situ, along with graphite and cedar; this bottle is a little more backward, probably due to the provenance. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit, white pepper and sage and fine grip. Though it’s not as precise or chiseled as recent vintages, there is admirable complexity on the lightly peppered, tobacco- and rooibos-tinged finish. Excellent. 2021 - 2050"

Press Review 2

"Jean-Hubert Delon thinks the 2001 Leoville Las Cases could turn out to be as good as his 2000. I’m not sure I agree, but it may come close. A blend of 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19.5% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc, the 2001 (which represents only 40% of the production) reveals notes of sweet vanillin intermixed with pure cassis, black cherries, and lead pencil shavings. Elegant and medium-bodied, it possesses a saturated purple color, high tannin, and a structured, backward feel in the mouth. This quintessentially elegant Las Cases needs another 5-7 years to hit its plateau of maturity. It will be one of the Medoc’s longest lived wines of the vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2030."

Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (153), June 2004
