Château Leoube Collector (2012)

Notes

The initial mouth feel is supple and silky, before revealing the structure and balance associated with the Léoube House style. The finish is powerful but controlled, and the rich flavors persist on the palate.

Although Léoube nose was slow to awaken, it was fabulous when it did. Layer upon layer of aromas wafted from the glass, bringing to mind blackberries, plums, red and black currents with whiffs of tobacco and garrigue. On the palate, the dark fruit flavors persisted; notes of earthiness or umami and vanilla, tobacco were detected, with a little spiciness. Medium body, well-balanced, good structure, and perfectly integrated tannins and alcohol.  The finish was long, finessed, and exceptionally pleasing.  What is most striking about this wine is its incredibly silky mouthfeel, emphasized by all tasters, and its seamless flow from nose to finish, “like a wonderful melody,” suggested one of our guest tasters. Elegant, refined, graceful, it quietly commands a presence at the table.
