Leoville-Las-Cases,  (St.-Julien) - 1982

Tasting Note

“This huge wine is in many ways just as massive as Leoville Barton but it possesses a greater degree of elegance as well as unreal con... (more...)centration. Classic lead pencil cassis kirsch cedar and spice characteristics are abundant in both the nose and full-bodied flavors. The tannins are still there and at least from my cellar this 1982 does not appear to have changed much in the last 10-12 years. One wonders how much patience admirers of this brilliant St.-Julien will continue to exhibit.” —Robert Parker
