They say that great Bordeaux vintages end in a “9”. Looking back over the 20th century that may well be true. 67 Pall Mall hosted a tasting which included the 1999 and 2009 courtesy of the Château Léoville Las-Cases, to many, a First Growth in all but name. We had the opportunity to contrast each wine with proprietor Jean-Hubert Delon’s other Saint Julien estate, Clos du Marquis from the same vintages. One of the most underrated wines on the Left Bank. Pierre Graffeuille, who works alongside Jean-Hubert, was on on hand to offer his own insights, plus Bordeaux reviewer Neal Martin, who has been visiting the estate for almost 20 years.
