Food Pairings for Leoville las Cases Owc
Actually, 3.4 stars. Color, this wine has an OKAY color, nothing spectacular really. On the nose, pencil shreds, yes! There a lot of pencil shreds going on here, wet stones, sweet tobacco, dried leaves, and a smell of (swimming pool!), very thin, a hint of blueberries. Midpalate, the first thing I notice here is that this wine is thin! It has a decent complexity, pencil shreds still vibrant, some blueberries coming through. Finish, this wine fills the mouth, acceptable acidity, rough tannins (not harsh though!), considerably long finish, not very pleasant. Overall, this wine is still well balanced. Taking into account that 2003 was a hot vintage in Bordeaux and not really that good, I think this is an acceptable effort compared to the other 2003 Bordeauxs. I have to emphasize that this wine is really thin in the mouth now, so I wouldn't recommend that you put it away for a long time. I am 91 on this effort. Happy drinking!
External Reviews for Leoville las Cases Owc
The solidly made 2003 Leoville Las-Cases (13.2% alcohol) is a blend of 70.2% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17.2% Merlot, and 12.6% Cabernet Franc. In this incredibly hot vintage, the alcohol is slightly lower than achieved in 2002, a cool-climate year. While not a profound example of Las-Cases, the 2003 is muscular, deep, and full-bodied with an impressive ruby/purple color, a tight but juicy bouquet of vanilla, black cherries, crushed rocks, and flowers, a sweet attack, and moderately high tannin. Backward and fresh, displaying impeccable delineation and purity, it can be enjoyed between 2012-2023.
Incredible nose of crushed berry, licorice, violets and lightly toasted oak. Pure crème de cassis. Full-bodied, with big, velvety tannins and a long, long finish. Solid. Best after 2011 Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2003 Leoville-Las Cases 750ml
