Leoville Las Cases has been released at €96 per bottle ex-negociant, up 21.5% on 2013 (€79) and up 12.9% on 2012 (€85). This is higher than many merchants predicted in the Liv-ex members’ En Primeur survey: the average estimation from the trade was a release price of €84.5 per bottle.

The wine is available from merchants at £920 per 12×75 – around the same level as a number of comparable back vintages. It saw relatively high scores across the board from critics, with Neal Martin reporting: “I love the elegance here – this is an outstanding wine from Jean-Hubert Delon and his team and dare I say, equal to some of the First Growths.”
