Tasting Notes

Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book (4), December 2003

The 1999 Leoville Las Cases possesses a dense purple color as well as classic aromas of vanilla, black cherries, and currants mixed with subtle toasty oak. The wine is medium-bodied with sweet tannin, yet it remains young, backward, and unevolved (unusual for a 1999). Its extraordinary purity and overall harmony give it a character all its own. This excellent Las Cases will be at its finest between 2006-2022.

warm and exciting wine from a slightly frigid vintage. Black ruby in color. Rich and powerful on the nose, with loads of currant, smoke and tobacco. Full bodied and silky, polished and long, very pretty indeed. Best after 2005. 15000 cases made.

The Delons have managed to extract great concentration here. The wine is black in colour and remarkably powerful and muscular. Stacked with ripe cassis fruit. Stylistically and geographically (and probably price-wise too) this tastes like a cross between Léoville Barton and Latour. One cannot fail to be impressed.
