Tealeaf aroma and slightly stewed, Quite tough palate. Respectable and sturdy without being thrilling.
Although I enjoyed this wine more three or four years ago, it remains a vibrant, exuberant, spicy, cedary, curranty claret with medium body, good depth, and real class. The second wine of Leoville-Las-Cases, it often performs at a classified growth level. Owners should plan to drink it by the turn of the century . Tasted 6 times since bottling with consistent notes.
