Bordeaux’s wet, cool 2004 vintage got lost between the exceptional 2003 and 2005, but Jean-Hubert Delon’s St.-Julien estate consistently delivers excellent wines in both great and difficult years. Half of the château’s 250 acres are planted in the famous Clos Léoville Las Cases, a gravelly vineyard that gently slopes down to the Gironde river. The wine was fermented in a mix of stainless-steel tanks, oak vats and cement tanks, then aged for about 18 months in oak barriques.
