    (Château Léoville-Las-Cases (St Julien)) A very impressive nose here, with dense fruit apparent, but it remains very expressive despite this weight and concentration. The fruit has a lightly exotic style to it, dark and concentrated but bright and very well defined. The palate has a very appealing texture, with a glossy weight to it, blended very harmoniously with a supple tannic backbone and a fresh acidity. This has a wonderfully earthy seam, savoury and fresh as well as dense. The finish is dry, leading into a long grip with a lightly chewy feel to it. Another very impressive wine for a difficult vintage.

    (Chateau Léoville-Las-Cases St Julien) Cabernet dominates, with 58% Sauvignon and 5% Franc, then 35% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot. Dark and attractive fruit here, rather floral aromas, with impressive dark fruit sweetness. Appealing, without showing overt or overpowering oak at this stage. Impressive palate, some flesh and sweet fruit, a good balance, and a nice texture over the tannins. Ripe, pervasive, but nicely poised. Good harmony. This has very good potential indeed.
