CHÂTEAU LÉOVILLE LAS CASES 1989

St.-Julien, 2éme Cru Classé

Very ripe, with raisin and dried fruits on the nose. You can smell the sun-dried grapes. Full-bodied, delivering firm tannins and a very fresh palate. Long and flavorful, offering currant, berries and all sorts of dark fruits, but turns lightly earthy and floral. This is a thoroughly complex wine. Just starting to really open into the mature 20-year-old wine it is, but such a great life ahead of it. Muscular.—'89/'99 Bordeaux blind retrospective (2009). Drink now. 90 WA 96 WS
