2004 Château Léoville Lascases, St Julien

2004 Château Léoville Lascases, St Julien

Ref: 0041BORD
Red  |  Still  |  13% ABV

Before the three parts of the vast Léoville estate were separated - even before the name Léoville had been applied to this tract of land - wine was being produced here: among the earliest of all vineyards of the Médoc. The vineyard was name Mont-Moytie after its owner, a member of parliament in Bordeaux in the mid-17th century. The next owner, Alexandre de Gascq, expended the estate to over 300 hectares. And it was he that introduced the name Léoville. After the revolution, the part that became Léoville Barton was sold off, then in 1840 the estate was split again with the eldest son of the owner, Pierre Jean de Lascases, receiving a share that would become Lascases. As the 19th century came to a close, the estate's managing director bought Lascases, subsequently bequeathing his shares to Andre Delon whose family still owns the property today. Lascases neighbours Latour at the far northern end of St Julien. The owners also have Nénin in Pomerol and the Médoc Château Potensac.

Tasting Notes

Rich and black, this is like the Clos du Marquis and then some. Chocolate and meat, violets again, blackcurrants and, perhaps, liquorice combine to make a seductive aroma here. This is very cool in the mouth, medium-full in weight; parallel of profile, and beautifully composed. Bowes Wine original note

Sweetness Explained
Sweetness Explained


All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab. 

Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
