The Chateau Leoville-Las Cases 2007 has a very deep purple garnet hue. The nose is very closed at first, with scents of black cherries, blackcurrant, cassis, violets and a faint hint of blood orange. The palate is full-bodied, very well-balanced with incredibly pure fruits. Filigree tannins, cohesive, superb weight and here, one of the few wines with that peacock’s tail of flavours on the finish, really lingering to reveal hidden nuances. Lush black cherries, vanilla, blueberries and again that tang of sweet, juicy blood orange. Great length. A wily, feminine Las-Cases.
