Château Léoville-Las Cases Grand Vin de Leoville du Marquis de las Cases Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1998

9.345 ratings on Delectable
$185

The 1998 has turned out to be one of the vintage's superb Medocs. It boasts an opaque black/purple color as well as a classic Leoville Las Cases display of lead pencil, gorgeously pure black raspberries and cherries, smoke, and graphite. A broad yet focused entry on the palate reveals firm tannin, medium to full body, superb concentration and purity, as well as a totally symmetrical mouthfeel. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2025.

Still too young! The nose was tight for a while and the moth fell was telling me to leave it alone for quite some time.

Great Juice. Nailed producer. Missed vintage.

Good complexity of aromas and the palate is beginning to soften but there is still a good amount of power and body. The finish is long and carries the vintage nicely.

Near-perfect balance of fruit, oak and soft tannin. Still sufficient body for several years, so best with red meat now. Gorgeous wine!

Here is something interesting. The oak is still omni present and the wine is not ready, but the fruit is just eking out. The tannins are really tasty. Nice balance. Wait a while though.
