Vintage Tastings

    (Leoville Las Cases) The third flight led off with a wine that had a big, warm nose fill of sweet, purple cassis. There was great musk and spice, excellent nut, and an almost creamy impression. The palate was rich, hearty and long with outstanding acid and outstanding tannins. Its finish was huge, really big, the biggest so far by a long shot. It had a tidalwave of a finish. The Good Doctor observed, ‘almond,’ and I added extract. This was a great showing for the 1990 Leoville Las Cases, and ultimately my wine of the night (96+).

    (Leoville Las Cases) I was surprised to see there was only one Bordeaux in the lineup; it was an outstanding1990 Leoville Las Cases. It had a great nose, classic Bordeaux all the way with its cedar, minerals, pencils and cassis underneath. The palate was still so, so young, long, cedary and zippy. James found it ‘velvety,’ and I found lots of interior qualities in that Better Homes and Gardens kind of way (96).

    (Leoville-Las Cases) Too ripe, forced and hot. Some "fake" flavors there and the whole thing just seemed wrong. This did not have the authenticity of the other three. Not even close. Too bad as LLC was a great wine once. No longer.

    A Mega 1990 Bordeaux Tasting with Clive, 3/21/2005 95 points

    (Leoville Las Cases) .Marzipan,. Ray noted, and there was nice, chunky fruit, wound and classy with its earth, rubber tire, grape, nut, cassis and mineral aromas. The wine was beautiful, tasty, balanced and smooth with luscious vanilla flavors. Clive gave it a reluctant 18 ½ , noting that it was .very closed and Margaux-like (in that it was) difficult to get a bead on. Wines built to last will go into their shells,. he justified, citing the fact that the wine was great, but that it .doesn.t sing. right now
