Château Léoville-Las Cases Grand Vin de Leoville du Marquis de las Cases Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1978

$129

...Sweet roasted vegetables, pencil lead and dark, cream fruits can be found in its complex aromatics. The palate doesn't quite fulfill the promise of the nose yet remains outstanding, with a medium to full body, ripe dark fruits, and a long silky finish... Robert Parker's Hedonist Gazette

Plenty of acidity. Fruits are tired. Fine grained tannins. Hints of bell pepper. Dust and earth. Leather.

Dinner party, notes will be limited. Bought from a restaurant closing about 5-6 years ago. Menthol, mint, red pepper, steely, soft tannins but still good acid, our first 78 Bordeaux.

Fresh, herbal, red. Unlikely most folks would accept this amount of pyrazines in a young wine today, but at 40 years it elevates aromas of all kinds.
