    2012 Saint-Julien from Bordeaux

    Chateau Leoville Las Cases is one of the oldest vineyards in the Medoc region. The 55 ha (135.9 acres) terroir is boarded with a stone wall. The 2012 Chateau Leoville Las Cases is 74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, and 11% Cabernet Franc.

    The rich and powerful red from Saint-Julien appellation displays a dense violet hue. The palate develops surprisingly mild and unique tannins. The medium-bodied vintage exudes notes of currant, graphite, crushed stone, and subtle wood nuances. The palate is very mineral and precise. This wine from Bordeaux is impressive and strong, with a rich texture leading to remarkable length on the finish.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    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.
