1997 Léoville-Las Cases, St-Julien

SKU #991295 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A star of the vintage, this classy, cedary, black currant, and sweet cherry-scented, dense ruby-colored Las Cases exhibits a beautiful dosage of new oak, medium body, expansive, ripe, concentrated flavors, plenty of glycerin, and exceptional purity. It is low in acidity, and already delicious. (RP) Inner quote mark (4/2000)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Expressive aromas of smoked plum, roast coffee, nuts and game. Lush, dense and smooth; currant, cedar and leather flavors are more primary than those of the above wine. Finishes with rich, smooth tannins. Lovely wine. (ST) Inner quote mark (6/2000)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Clearly outstanding. Lots of berry, violet and vanilla character. Full-bodied, with extremely silky, polished tannins and a long, minty, mineral aftertaste. Gorgeous. (JS, Web Only—2001) Inner quote mark

K&L Notes

90 points Neal Martin's Wine Journal: "Tasted at the Las-Cases off-line at The Square. The 1997 Las-Cases is a solid performer for the vintage. It displays fine definition and freshness on the nose with blackberry leaf, crushed stone and briary, imbued with a sense of joie-de-vivre perhaps lacking on the ’99. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins lending it masculinity and structure. I like the tension here: a ’97 with energy and vivacity with a long sweet tail of black fruit towards the finish. Drinking now, but it will keep for another decade. Tasted February 2011."
