This exceptionally tasty Bordeaux bargain displays extraordinary pure plum and red currant fruit. The bouquet is forward, with notes of red currant, plum and subtle hints of spice box and black tea. The palate is robust and round, typical of a warmer vintage, with spice notes surrounding a core of cassis and blackberry. The balance between the bold dark fruit and structure is marvelously consistent with its pedigree while defying the humble price tag. Enjoy this over the next 7 years while you wait for pricier Bordeaux to come around in the cellar.
Leoville Las Cases Winery
Léoville-Las Cases was once part of a much larger estate until the time of the French Revolution when a portion of this estate was separated into what is today Château Léoville-Barton. In 1840, the estate was again divided and land that would eventually become Château Léoville-Poyferré was split off.
