1986 Léoville-Las-Cases, St-Julien (high shoulder fill)

SKU #1073349 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Michel Delon, the formidable administrator of Leoville-Las Cases, likens his 1986 to his 1966 and 1961. Having had both those wines, I have to say the 1986 vintage is far superior. From the dense, virtually opaque, ruby/black/purple color, which offers up aromas of intense blackcurrants and black-cherries, as well as a hefty dose of toasty new oak, this beautifully crafted, full-bodied wine shows extraordinary extract, near-perfect balance, and remarkable length and persistence on the palate. With as much tannin as in any recent Leoville-Las Cases, this wine is certainly going to need a minimum of 10-15 years of cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 1998-2030. Inner quote mark (10/1994)

95 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Firm and focused, with beautifully articulated currant, raspberry and nutmeg aromas and flavors; very supple for such a lean-textured Bordeaux. Inner quote mark (2/1992)
