Chateau Leoville las Cases St. Julien 1996

Winemaker's Notes:

Berry Bros & Rudd review: One of the best Lascases I have ever tasted. Whilst the ripe 1990 is the more seductive wine at the moment, the 1996 has a linear class, focus and balance that is pretty much in the first-growth league. It's often said that there is a very strong argument for Lascases being reclassified as a first growth; in vintages such as 1996, 2000 & 2005 it's all the more compelling. One of the most complete clarets available.<br/><br/>(Joss Fowler - BBR Fine Wine Team - 10-Nov-2008)
