The 2003 vintage was considered to be great year by the wine producers at Leoville Las-Cases! It can easily be conceived that the wine will contunue to grow and mature with a few more years of rest, but can absolutely be opened and fully enjoyed today! 

Information About Chateau Leoville Las Cases

The large estate of Chateau Leoville-Las Cases was divided during the French Revolution to give birth to Chateau Leoville Barton, and again in 1840 creating Chateau Leoville-Poyferre. Keeping the original name, Chateau Leoville-Las Cases remains the largest of the Leoville chateaux.

The vineyard encompasses 98 hectares with 66% of vines representing Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. Chateau Leoville was one of the first Bordeaux wine estates to produce a second wine ‘Le Petit Lion’ starting from the 2007 vintage to preserve the quality of the Grand Vin.

An incredibly fresh, lively 2003 (the pH is only 3.6 and the alcohol is 13.1%), this wine offers a dense ruby/purple color along with full body and a remarkable nose of black currants, kirsch, lead pencil shavings and vanilla. Opulent, full-bodied and close to full maturity, it is a seamless classic that will age for 15-20 more years. Kudos to the Delon family for such a brilliant achievement in a tricky vintage.

Rating : 96/100

Full ruby-red. Plum, tar, cedar and nutty oak on the nose; less exotic than most '03s. Then massive and full on the palate; almost too big for the mouth. As silky as this is, it also possesses very good acidity for the vintage. Finishes with huge but lush tannins and superb length. The IPT here is 74, compared to 70 in 2005, and the alcohol is a tad higher, at 13.2%. A perfect vintage of Las Cases for tasters who normally find this wine too rigorous, but this still promises to be long-lived.

Rating : 93+/100

Deep garnet. Ripe fruit-cake aromas and spice but with some cedary herbaceous notes too. More leafy on the palate and uncharacteristically juicy. Fine grained and dense tannins but there's good fruit depth. Flavourful not elegant.

Rating : 16.5/20
