Château Léoville, Las Cases AOC Saint Julien 2016

RRP £187.50

The refined tannins, palate opulence, and gorgeous texture incarnate liquid elegance. The blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot and 11% Cabernet Franc shows off quintessential lead pencil and cassis, but with subtle depth and density, its 13.6% alcohol perfectly balanced by freshening acidity. The long finish is First Growth level for less than half the price.
