Chateau Leoville las Fcs 2eme Cru Classe St-Julien 1990

Winemaker's Notes:

Parker review: As one might expect, this is a brilliant wine, but it remains shockingly young,<br/>even for the fast evolving 1990s. Its deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by<br/>a classic, nearly restrained set of aromatics that includes notions of sweet<br/>black cherries, black currants, lead pencil, and wet stones. In the mouth, it<br/>is full-bodied, and while technically low in acidity, there is a freshness,<br/>delineation, and classicism in this full-throttle, rich, concentrated,<br/>impeccable 1990. While still youthful, it is easy to appreciate despite its<br/>substantial tannins. It is not quite as backward as the 1990 Lafite Rothschild<br/>or 1990 Latour. Anticipated maturity: now-2035 <br/>(Robert Parker - Wine Advocate - June 2009)

Beautifully crafted red. Gorgeous plum, berry and smoky oak character. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long, long, ripe fruit finish. A joy to taste... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1990 Leoville-Las Cases 750ml
