  • Jancis Robinson | Rating: 16

    Deep purple. Iodine and race on the nose. Thick and sweet and lacks a very slight lift. Bit heavy. This one needs lots of time. Others were more impressed.

    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.

    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.

    Deep ruby color; enormous depth; fabulous fruit; real intensity yet mellow and smooth; a full, complete wine; very lovely & very classy; a wine of very fine quality; very good tannins that have softened and integrated nicely; very long delicious finish. A great Bordeaux that is drinking beautifully and will continue to for many years.

    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.

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

    Wonderful wine that is ready to drink. Strong aroma of pepper and licorice, perhaps leather as well. The fruit and the tannins are in harmony. Not as good as I expected (but that may be expectation vs. reality) but a lovely wine.

The Second Growth classified estate of Leoville Las Cases continues to produce wines of exceptional quality, rivaling those of the First Growth producers. The wines are full-bodied, concentrated and complex, and have tremendous aging potential. Typical blends consist of over 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, with lesser amounts of Merlot and Cabernet Franc, and a small amount of Petit Verdot. Bargain hunters should also keep an eye out for the estate's second label, Clos du Marquis.
