Enjoyed this wine in 2009 for a special occasion and the wine became the occasion. Rich berry notes with a long smooth finish.

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.

Fabulous aromas of crushed raspberry, blackberry, mineral and licorice follow through to a full-bodied palate. This is chewy yet silky, with a long, long finish. Balanced and powerful. Best after 2012.

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 3andndash;4 years, and should keep for 15andndash;20.

2ème Cru Classé

Saturated dark ruby. Cassis, shoe polish, camphor and rose petal on the nose; this reminded me of a great vintage of Latour. Dense and extremely concentrated; explosive yet totally backward. There nothing playful about this infant claret. Finishes wi... Stephen Tanzer. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1986 Leoville-Las Cases 750ml

Concentrated and powerful, yet elegantly refined, Léoville-Las-Cases is classic. The superb 1986 from this estate (located next to Pauillac's Latour), is rich, full-flavored with intense aromas of cassis, spices and vanilla.
