Chateau Leoville las Fcs 2eme Cru Classe St-Julien Cl 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)

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

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.

($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
