International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 78

Deep ruby-red. Deep, lively aromas of red- and blackcurrants, licorice, tobacco and grilled nuts. Great sweetness and silky texture in the mouth currently overshadows the wine strong supporting acidity and tight core of spice and minerals. The toothcoating tannins don't cover as much of the mouth as those of the '96 do, but this wine offers uncanny length.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker

If it were not for the prodigious 1996, everyone would be concentrating on getting their hands on a few bottles of the fabulous 1995 Leoville-Las-Cases, which is one of the vintage's great success stories. The wine boasts an opaque ruby/purple color, and exceptionally pure, beautifully knit aromas of black fruits, minerals, vanillin, and spice. On the attack, it is staggeringly rich, yet displays more noticeable tannin than its younger sibling. Exceptionally ripe cassis fruit, the judicious use of toasty new oak, and a thrilling mineral character intertwined with the high quality of fruit routinely obtained by Las Cases, make this a compelling effort. There is probably nearly as much tannin as in the 1996, but it is not as perfectly sweet as in the 1996. The finish is incredibly long in this classic. Only 35% of the harvest was of sufficient quality for the 1995 Leoville-Las-Cases.

Slowly builds on your palate, then delivers fabulous character and structure. Extremely well-crafted young red. Complex aromas of violets, berries, cinnamon and currants. Full-bodied, with extremely well-integrated tannins and a long, long finish. 18,000 cases made.

One of the 1995 vintage's major success stories. The wine is now fully mature with no tannin. The 1995 has a strong ruby/purple color, and exceptionally pure aroma of fruits and spices. The finish is beautifully long in this classic Bordeaux. A wonderful wine to drink now or save.

very powerful and unusual flavors; but did not shine compared to other Las Cases vintages at the St. Julien tasting; but long life?

Just a great wine with fabulous purity, fruit and balance. It would be misleading to call it young--it drinks so well now--but there are years left. Has to be one of the wines of this good vintage.
