Château Léoville-Las Cases

La Petite Marquise du Clos du Marquis Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2018

Château Léoville Las Cases ‘La Petite Marquise’ Saint-Julien 2018: Medium-full bodied. Medium-high acidity. Noticeable tannins that mellowed out over time. Deep purple in color. Tasting notes of blackberry, plum, strawberry, cedar & oak. Smooth warm finish. All in all, a rich & delicious Saint-Julien wine however very worthy of additional years of cellaring. Be well wine friends! Cheers 🇫🇷🍷 — 13 days ago

Grand Vin de Leoville du Marquis de las Cases Saint-Julien Cabernet sauvignon 1995

Wow! Fully mature Bordeaux is one of my favorites. Aromatics of dark black and blue fruits of blackberry, blueberry. Mid palate of leather, tobacco, saddle leather, spice. Long finish of more than a minute. Still young and viable. Nice big boy who takes charge and names. This is a great wine! — 2 years ago

Mon dieu! Opened too early. Exceptional, but still requires another 3 years in the bottle. Tannic monster, but revealing it pedigree. So pristine and precise. A first growth in all but the designation.... — 3 years ago

Hey @Mike R, Las Cases is probably my fave Bdx. It’s quality is right up there with the 1st growths, but costs half the price!

One of my fave 00 Bdx wines. Presents perfectly with bright cherries and saddle leather on the nose, followed by graphite and black fruits on the mid palate. This will sail on for years since the tannins and acidity are still very prominent. Unbeatable 2nd wine from Las Cases. — 16 days ago

Another stellar vintage, @Paul T- Huntington Beach. I’m not surprised that it continues to show well. I still have several bottles of the 03 Las Cases to look forward to.

That pricing on delectable is so wrong though,

Have a few bottles of the '00 on the list but haven't been able to taste it. Looks like I need to pick up more.

Château Lafite Rothschild

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1985

Delectable Wine
9.3

The 1985 Lafite-Rothschild is only a modest success in the context of the vintage. Here, it is totally outclassed by the 1985 Las Cases. Light, slightly loose-knit red berry fruit on the nose is complemented by warm gravel and smoky aromas, though it lacks a bit of energy. The palate is nicely balanced, not powerful but focused, with adequate freshness. As mentioned in my previous tasting note, this has dispensed with some density in recent years, and if your expectations are modest, it remains enjoyable. Tasted at Hameau de Barbaron in Burgundy.

More gravitas and oomph than the Las Cases but a smidge less inviting. Still presenting substantial tannins but the fruit gets a foot in the water and shines with dark cherry, iron and soil. — 4 years ago

Wonderful wine that opened up nicely after an hour in the decanter. Great start to an evening with colleagues and just the right choice before we got to the steak where some of the other wines shined a lot more — 23 days ago

2010 Bordeaux zoom tasting with Lisa Perrott-Brown, editor in chief for RP Wine Advocate. The wines have been shut down, some waking up...big wines with volume turned up on everything (tannin, acidity, alcohol), structured, and should cellar for many years.

@Shay A . Check out Robert Parker a matter of taste website for updates. They hold terrific live events (NY, Napa, etc). But, recently doing zoom events...2010 Bordeaux and Rhone valley before this. Also, check out Decanter events (most for Europe..darn). But for US, doing a taped zoom tasting....Verite: evolution of a decade.. 2008 vintage and 2018 vintage tasting kit of the 6 wines and watch tasting with Pierre Seillan & Helena Seillan. Cheers!
