This is breathtaking. Black in color, with incredible aromas of crushed blackberry, mineral, licorice and lead pencil. Full-bodied, with a mind-blowing texture of seamless tannins that coat every millimeter of the palate. Goes on and on, with licorice, currant and flowers. Time will tell if it's better than the 2000. Best after 2017. 20,000 cases made.- According to the Wine Spectator
Good full red-ruby. Superripe aromas of plum, mocha, coffee and spicy oak. Big, dry, broad and rich, with a chewy quality and noteworthy sweetness to the plummy flavor. This has more baby fat than the young 2006 but not quite as much detail or verve. Finishes quite broad, with major ripe tannins and lingering sweet fruit.
The superb second wine, the 2005 Clos du Marquis, reflects the utter brilliance of the 2005 grand vin. It boasts an inky/ruby/purple color along with a sweet perfume of lead pencil, ripe cherries and black currants, and hints of earth and vanillin. Dense, chewy, fleshy, and full-bodied, this beauty will be drinkable in 3-4 years, and should keep for 15-20.
Saturated ruby-red. A confiture of dark berries on the nose with a complicating torrefaction note of coffee. Fat sweet plump and full with a silky enveloping texture rare for this wine in its youth. The highly concentrated cassis violet and bitter chocolate flavors really take over the mouth and stay awhile. The huge chocolatey finish features big ripe building tannins. One can easily taste this massive wine today but there are great reserves here to ensure a long and slow evolution in
Chateau Leoville-Las Cases is one of the largest and oldest classified growths in the Medoc. Intense aromas of cassis and dark cherry lead to a rich body and firm tannins. A bold, concentrated and classically built offering that’s masculine, complex and will age beautifully.
Here is one more vintage to prove Las Cases deserves to be elevated to first growth. The Delon family has tended this great terroir as if they were already there. And the wine has the assured stance the persistence of flavor that lasts long enough to become a memory an imprint on whatever synaptic connection may store and recall the greatest pleasures of taste. The energy in the wine is remarkable: beautiful lithe juice that carries a flavor close to tiny currants and black cherries but a fl
Another titanic effort from the Delon family the 2005 Leoville Las Cases is probably the greatest wine made at this estate since Jean-Hubert Delon s father produced the 1986 and 1996. Only 37% of the production made it into the 2005 a blend of primarily Cabernet Sauvignon with less than 13% Merlot and Cabernet Franc. An inky/ruby/purple color is accompanied by reticent aromatics that with considerable coaxing offer up subtle notes of toasty vanillin intermixed with lead pencil shavings wet
Berry Bros & Rudd review: If the 1855 Classification was rewritten tomorrow there is no doubt that this<br/>aristocratic estate would be reclassified as a First Growth. Their incredible<br/>2005 simply adds to this cause. This has all the power and well-tailored<br/>elegance of a classic St Julien but with a sleek, concentrated, amazingly fresh<br/>character. Coffee and dark chocolate permeate the dense blackcurrant fruit, and<br/>while this is maybe less muscular than we expected, the very firm tannins are<br/>merely hiding within the massive, harmonious and elegant structure, this will<br/>be magnificent.
