The opaque purple-hued 2006- only 40% of the crop made it into the final blend- exhibits a personality that mimics the superb 1996. Classic aromas of sweet black raspberries, kirsch, cassis, and subtle toasty oak are followed by a full-bodied, concentrated wine displaying moderately high tannin. This cuvee can often resemble a Pauillac wrapped in the St.-Julien appellation, and the 2006 is no exception. A blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14.5% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc, it will require significant cellaring before consumption.

Voll, körperreich und konzentriert. In seiner Jugend hat der Wein eine undurchdringliche, fast schwarze Farbe und duftet nach Cassis, Minze, schwarzer Sojasauce, Pfeffer und Zedernholz. Im Gaumen erlebt man eine tolle Bestätigung der Aromatik und der Fülle.

Bright, full ruby. Brooding aromas of cassis, black cherry, minerals, bitter chocolate, shoe polish and violet; more Pauillac than Saint-Julien on the nose. Then rich, lush and powerful, with impressive fullness and volume. As full and sweet as this ... Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Leoville-Las Cases 1500ml

Offers a pure nose of crushed raspberry and violet, with aniseed. Full-bodied, with beautiful, well-integrated tannins and a long, polished texture to the finish. Very beautiful. Harmonious and structured. Best after 2015. -JS Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Leoville-Las Cases 1500ml
