Critics’ scores 

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.  

Fair Value analysis 

Although the 2021 has been released at a discount to last year, today’s opening price comes at around an 18% premium to the price implied by Liv-ex’s Fair Value methodology. Buyers might be interested in the similarly scored 2014, which is available for a 32% discount.  

The 97-point 2019 and 2015 vintages also cost less than today’s release and thus present an attractive alternative. 

Le Petit Lion du Marquis de Las Cases 2021 has also been released today and is being offered at £498 per dozen.
