Château Léoville las Cases Red Bordeaux Blend St. Julien 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Parker review: "Proprietor Jean-Hubert Delon believes the 2004 Leoville Las-Cases, a<br/>blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc,<br/>represents a lighter version of the 1996 and 1986 Las Cases. While an<br/>outstanding effort, it does not possess the breadth or depth of flavor found in<br/>the two aforementioned vintages. A classic bouquet of black cherries, cassis,<br/>crushed rocks, flowers, vanilla, and background oak emerges from this dense<br/>ruby/purple-tinged 2004. Medium-bodied with moderately high tannin and crisp<br/>acidity in the strong finish, it should be at its finest between<br/>2010-2020." 90-92/100 points. (Robert Parker - Wine Advocate -<br/>Jun-2006)

Intense aromas of currant blackberry and light vanilla. Full-bodied with velvety tannins and a long caressing finish. Layered with everything in the right proportion for the vintage. Excellent. Reminds me of the 1996. Best after 2012. 20 000 cases made. JS Wine Spectator.

Dolcetto gehört zu den alten, einheimischen Traubensorten des Piemonts. Vietti zeigt mit seinem Tre Vigne eine ganz ungewohnte Dimension von Kraft und geschmeidiger Fülle. Im Bukett sind Noten nach reifen schwarzen Kirschen und Pflaumen zu erkennen. Im Gaumen bringt er eine erstaunliche Extraktsüsse und ein volles Mundgefühl mit.

Performing better from bottle than it did from cask this blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon 13% Merlot and 11% Cabernet Franc has put on weight over the last year. It exhibits the classic style of both Las Cases and St.-Julien in its deep black currant notes interwoven with sweet cherries wet stones and toasty vanillin. Made in a structured medium to full-bodied style with superb concentration beautiful purity and admirable symmetry this beauty is one of the strongest efforts of the vintag

Deep red-ruby. Expressive aromas of currant plum mocha tobacco and minerals with a slight dusty character. Supple but a bit youthfully inky with a dusty quality to the moderately sweet fruit. This is a bit dry compared to the young 2006 and one has the impression that the oak tannins are less successfully integrated with the wine s fruit. This concentrated persistent wine really needs seven or eight years of cellaring. 90+ Stephen Tanzers IWC.

A classic, albeit less intense, bouquet of black cherries, cassis, flowers and vanilla dominate the palate of this red Bordeaux. A blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc.
