CHATEAU LEOVILLE LAS CASES 1996
Château Léoville Las Cases 1996
St. Julien, 2ème Cru Classé
Slightly bin-soiled labels, 4 wine-stained labels, soiled capsules

50 hl/ha. 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Franc. The year that Jean-Hubert Delon took responsibility for the wine. Red brick colour. Great refinement and elegance on the nose, with a nice spicy character. Very long flavour. Classic Cabernet Sauvignon style. Not overly rich, but very refined, pure and elegant. This can continue to improve over many years. Last tasted from an Imperial in Hong Kong in 2010. Spicy, aromatic, very Médocain nose. Woodlands and cherries. Cherry jam fruit on the palate. So fresh and juicy, maybe even more so in this format. Serena Sutcliffe, MW WA 98
