Chateau Loeville Las Cases 'Grand Vin de Leoville du Marquis de Las Cases, 1997
Second Growth. Even though this wine was classified as a Second Growth in the 1855 classification, this vineyard is special and often considered by those in the know to be as good as any of the First Growths. This inevitable represents great value where you can enjoy First Growth quality for maybe half the price! Chateau Leoville Las Cases borders on the north with Chateau Latour and has often been called the Latour of St. Julien.
Perfume of sweet cassis combined with mineral, mostly that of lead. Powerful and rich. Concentrated and dense. Tastes elegant and refined, mainly of black berries and dark fruits. Svelte and silky smooth tannins. Beautifully coats your mouth! Can't believe the elegance of this wine!
