Leoville Las Cases surprised everyone this morning by releasing their 2021 vintage – and pleasingly they have released the wines at a 15% discount to their 2020 wines, priced at £975 per case of 6. For those that have been reading our other investment posts, this is promising for the rest of the campaign and we hope that others continue to follow suit.
The 2021 Léoville-Las-Cases received 94-96 points from Neal Martin (Vinous), who said it was ‘very impressive in terms of depth and backbone’ and called it a ‘cerebral Las-Cases’.
Antonio Galloni gave it the same score, describing it as ‘classy, nuanced and so expressive’.
William Kelley (The Wine Advocate) awarded it a slightly higher barrel range of 95-97 points and declared it ‘one of the wines of the vintage’.
Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW (The Wine Independent) rated it 91-93+ points, while Jane Anson awarded it a score of 94.
We have taken good allocations of this wine – as our allocations of this brilliant estate grow year on year.
