Ch. Leoville Las Cases St Julien 2003

Cabernet Sauvignon from France - Bordeaux
Review Date : 31-Dec-2014
2eme, 70% CS, 17% Me, 13% CF, 13.0% alc., the wine aged up to 20 months in 80% new oak. Approx. 18,000 cases made. Very dark, black-red colour with some garnet on rim. The nose is very fine-featured, elegant and stylishly presented with fragrant, primary dark berry and curranty fruit along with black floral notes. Medium-bodied, the palate is tight in concentration, quite slender with blackcurrant, dried herb and cedary flavours, a little savoury, secondary nuance appearing. Some TCA noticeable, scalping the fruit expression. Still with fine linear, near sinewy mouthfeel, the wine fresh, and with sweet and fragrance coming through. The quality of this still shows despite the cork taint. 17.5+/20 Nov 2014
