Drop-dead gorgeous Bordeaux. This big St. Julien is ready to drink now, but still has some bottle life. However, I don't think it is going to get any better than it is now.

2ème Cru Classé


External Review
01/07/2011

($168-$245) Saturated bright, dark ruby. Perfumed, vibrant, very youthful aromas of cassis, violet and bitter chocolate. Dense and powerful, with great clarity of flavor thanks to a terrific spine of acidity. Almost painfully structured wine but not ... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1996 Leoville-Las Cases 1500ml

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)
