1990 Chateau Leoville-Las CasesBordeaux, France
|Producer||:||Chateau Leoville-Las Cases|
|Sub Region||:||St Julien|
|Capacity||:||750 ml - Standard Bottle|
|Rating||:||96 - RP||Tasting Note||:||As one might expect, this is a brilliant wine, but it remains shockingly young, even for the fast evolving 1990s. Its deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by a classic, nearly restrained set of aromatics that includes notions of sweet black cherries, black currants, lead pencil, and wet stones. In the mouth, it is full-bodied, and while technically low in acidity, there is a freshness, delineation, and classicism in this full-throttle, rich, concentrated, impeccable 1990. While still youthful, it is easy to appreciate despite its substantial tannins. It is not quite as backward as the 1990 Lafite Rothschild or 1990 Latour. Anticipated maturity: now-2035.|
