Available for:
Dark, intense and concentrated, Château Léoville-Las Cases is a tannic and richly fruity wine that takes over 10-15 years to mature. Château Léoville Las Cases is one of the largest and oldest classified growths in the Médoc. Originally the other two Léovilles, Léoville Poyferré and Léoville Barton were part of the large estate. Today Léoville Las Cases comprises over 209 acres and has been owned since 1950 by the Delon Family.

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 with extraordinary, slow-building persistence. Very serious juice; one of the great Bordeaux of the 1980s. Drink 2010 through 2035. 97(+?) points.

Firm and focused, with beautifully articulated currant, raspberry and nutmeg aromas and flavors; very supple for such a lean-textured Bordeaux. Approaching drinkability, but it can use until 2000 to soften.
