CHÂTEAUX LÉOVILLE LAS CASES, LÉOVILLE POYFERRÉ & LÉOVILLE BARTON, SAINT-JULIEN

 

BORDEAUX, FRANCE 2017

 

 

Saint-Julien is a treasure trove of underrated gems that over-deliver for the price. Though it is the smallest appellation in the Medoc, it is home to the largest number of “Super Seconds” and boasts the highest ratio of classified estates in Bordeaux. Today’s impressive trio of Léoville Las Cases, Léoville Poyferré, and Léoville Barton from the under-the-radar 2017 vintage clearly upholds the region’s reputation of consistency and quality. With the power of Pauillac to the north and the elegance of Margaux to the south, the wines of Saint-Julien offer the best of both worlds and for one week, you can collect all three with Mix & Match pricing! These wines will continue to reward for many years to come. 

 

Producers have called the 2017 Bordeaux vintage “the ‘forgotten vintage’ but it doesn’t deserve the name...many winemakers managed to produce outstanding wines from their vineyards, showcasing great technique and precision in their viticulture and enology” (James Suckling). Despite some difficulties during the growing season, each of today’s wines show remarkable finesse and collectibility, along with an exceptional report card of critic scores. 

 

The 2017 Léoville Las Cases “captures all the best the vintage has to offer. Rich, unctuous and stunning in its beauty, the 2017 possesses tremendous richness and textural intensity” according to Vinous Media and even seemed to knock the socks off of Wine Advocate’s Lisa Perrotti-Brown, who concludes her review with “da**, that’s good.” The 2017 Léoville Poyferré offers up a “rounded, opulent texture, and sweet tannins [and is] unquestionably one of the biggest, richest wines in the vintage” per Jeb Dunnuck, while Vinous founder Antonio Galloni reports “this a tremendous effort from the Cuvelier family. Don't miss it.” Boasting high scores like the other two wines, the 2017 Léoville Barton “charges out of the gate with bold notions of baked plums, crème de cassis and blueberry preserves plus wafts of pencil shavings, fragrant earth and cedar chest” (Wine Advocate) and is “one of the very few wines, from any appellation, that combines power and finesse with such grace in 2017” (Vinous). Each of these wines are a must-have for anyone's collection, and will continue to get better with age in the coming decades. Don’t miss your opportunity to take advantage of incredible pricing!
