Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate 93/100
Michel Delon, a great man, is the consummate proprietor, meticulously administering this vast estate spread out along the St.-Julien/Pauillac border, separated from Latour's finest vineyard by a mere ten feet. The 1993-95 vintages from Delon are brilliant wines. Leoville-Las-Cases remains one of the irrefutable reference points for high class Bordeaux. One of the more massive Medocs of the vintage, this opaque purple-colored wine exhibits fabulous richness and volume in the mouth. Layers of pure black-cherry and cassis fruit are intermixed with stony, mineral-like scents, as well as high quality toasty oak. Medium to full-bodied, with a sweet, rich entry, this wine possesses plenty of tannin, yet fabulous extract and length. Leoville-Las-Cases is one of the half-dozen great wines of the Medoc in 1994. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2025. This lion never falls asleep on the job! Reviewed in 1997
Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate 94/100
Tasted at the Las-Cases off-line at The Square. One of Delon's great successes is the under-the-radar '94. Here it has a vibrant blackberry, cedar and mocha-tinged nose, mint developing with time with a cheeky hint of menthol. Wonderful focus and delineation here. The palate is medium-bodied with firm, obdurate tannins, typically masculine and foursquare, but you cannot ignore the thrust and power of this Las-Cases with impressive weight and grip towards the finish. Excellent. Tasted February 2011.
