Château Léoville-Las Cases, St-Julien, 2ème Cru Classé, Bordeaux 1982



Château Léoville-Las Cases 1982

Again, the iron filings and bloody flesh of an older Cabernet.

This has a little more force but a little less grace than some others in the line-up.

It is a beautiful wine with stunning concentration, but I miss some lift through the body. Still incredible integrity of colour, these wines have got decades left in them.

Wild strawberries, ripe figs and damsons on the palate, the tannins do soften with coaxing in the glass, revealing some cigar box and leather aromatics.

Alc 12.5%
