Greatest Chateau Leoville Las cases Saint-Julien ever produced. Superb concentration with a great velvety texture and ripe fresh flavors. Chateau Leoville Las cases Saint-Julien has coconut and vanilla notes and a burst of fruit at the end; wonderful backbone. Very ripe, with raisin and dried fruits on the nose. You can smell the sun-dried grapes. Full-bodied, delivering firm tannins and a very fresh palate. Long and flavorful, offering currant, berries and all sorts of dark fruits, but turns lightly earthy and floral. Chateau Leoville Las cases Saint-Julien is a thoroughly complex wine. Just starting to really open into the mature 20-year-old wine it is, but such a great life ahead of it. Muscular.'89/'99 Bordeaux blind retrospective (2009).
