Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

WE 96
Wine Enthusiast
This combines considerable power and concentration with rich, impressive fruits. It has both style and elegance, with density to give it great aging potential. The tannins are firm while also having a velvet texture. The wine, dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, is for serious aging. Drink from 2025. Cellar Selection.
JD 95
Jeb Dunnuck
Standing out for its sheer purity and class, the 2012 Leoville-Las Cases is about as seamless as they come, with medium to full-bodied richness, fabulous notes of crème de cassis, cedary spice, plums, spice and wood smoke, with its oak component pushed well into the background. While not a blockbuster, it is impeccably balanced, with a full, layered mid-palate, building tannin and a rock-solid finish. Give this straight up classy 2012 4-5 years in the cellar and enjoy bottles over the following two decades or more.
WS 94
Wine Spectator
This is among the tightest wines at this early stage, with a wall of smoldering charcoal holding the core of dark plum, blackberry paste and cassis in reserve. The sleek finish shows admirable length and a mouthwatering echo of iron. This harnesses the austerity of the vintage to its advantage, and should unwind slowly in the cellar.
RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The bigger sister or brother of Le Petit Lion, depending on your point of view, the 2012 Leoville Las Cases has gorgeous minerality, plenty of blueberry and blackcurrant fruit that is super-pure, an opaque ruby/purple color, medium body and firm structured, slightly austere personality. This wine is built for the long-term. A blend of 74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and 11% Cabernet Franc, it attained 13.5% alcohol, which is substantial for a 2012 Médoc. It has depth and richness, but also a boatload of tannin. Forget it for 8-10 years and drink over the following 15-20.
JS 93
James Suckling
So pure on the nose with aromas of blackcurrants, raspberries and licorice. Hints of stones. Full body, polished yet chewy tannins and a long and racy finish. Layered tannins. Citrusy undertones. Bright acidity. Better in 2019.
WW 93
Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
The 2012 Château Léoville Las Cases continues to evolve as a wine between the First Growths and Super Seconds (top quality Second Growths). Over the past two decades, the wines have shown more power than I could have ever imagined would have come out of Saint-Julien—some would argue that since Léoville Las Cases is only a stone's throw from Château Latour, it should be considered more like a powerful Pauillac. While this vintage shows plenty of black fruits and richness, there is elegance here that is very becoming of this wine. (Tasted: April 9, 2013, Saint-Julien, France) barrel sample: 91-93
