France - Bordeaux - St Julien

Red Bordeaux Blend - Second Growth
Producer Notes

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... More »

Medium ruby red, nicely perfumed nose of crème de cassis, dark cherries and oak, slightly floral with a bit of animal funk on the back end. Medium bodied yet viscous, relatively low tannin and acidity. This is somewhat reserved for LLC and a bit short but still very enjoyable. No need to wait too long, drinking well now.

Bought on release. Decanted 1 hour, small bottle. Dark blue, red rim. A textbook St Julien -- an elegant and rich combination of floral, leather, mineral and blackberry on the nose, confirmed on the palate with silky smooth length. A grippy finish shows it is still quite young, as expected. Try full bottles after 2014, a classic Las Cases.

Now this is a classic wine (doesn'tit get old to hear LLC is producing first growth quality juice?!). Wonderful proportioned nose, Pauillac-like scents of lead pencil, tobacco, cedar and black currant are subtle, but superlative. The mouthfeel is genuine and caressing, w/ spot on integration and subtle power that screams of it?s pedigree. A persistence and elegance all Bordeaux dream to attain.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
