The 2020 Léoville Las Cases is a classic in the making, unwinding in the glass with aromas of cherries, cassis, loamy soil, violets and dark chocolate framed by a discreet touch of new oak. Full-bodied, broad and layered, it's rich and concentrated, with a deep core of fruit framed by sweet, powdery tannins and lively acids. Concluding with a long, resonant finish, it's built for the cellar. ~ (97) William Kelley, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 4-6-2023

A linear and very racy wine with super fine tannins that run the length of the wine. Superb. It’s full-bodied yet really focused and polished with a length and intensity. Lots of currants and graphite. Very classy and fine. The new 1996. Give it six to seven years to come around. ~ (98) James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com 3-27-2023

Intense, subtle and reserved. Just a hint of spice and cedar. Dense and tightly woven on the palate, the texture smooth and refined. Tannins firm but finely etched, the manifest acidity reinforcing the structure and helping with length and persistence. Adequate flesh to mask the tannins. Plenty of potential. ~ (17.5) James Lawther, JancisRobinson.com 11-30-2022

Another 2020 that's going to demand patience, the 2020 Château Léoville Las Cases is a Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated blend that includes 11% Cabernet Franc and 8% Merlot that was raised in 80% new French oak. It's a regal, medium to full-bodied, concentrated, flawlessly balanced 2020 with a pure core of cassis and darker currant fruits, a layered, seamless mouthfeel that carries substantial tannins, perfectly integrated oak, and subtle floral, mineral, and leafy herb nuances. Playing in the concentrated yet focused and structured style of the vintage, it's going to need a decade to hit the early phases of its prime drinking window and will have 50-75 years of longevity. ~ (98) Jeb Dunnuck, JebDunnuck.com 3-29-2023

Sleek and slightly austere in feel, with a cold cast iron note framing a core of tightly compressed cassis, plum and blackberry fruit flavors. Shows subtle flashes of tobacco and smoldering charcoal, as the finish lingers with verve. A stoic red. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Best from 2030 through 2045. ~ (96) James Molesworth, Wine Spectator 3-31-2023
