Château Léoville Las Cases, Saint-Julien 1981

Leoville Las Cases 1981

Oxblood color, gemstone appearance.  Metal, sea air and graphite on entry.  Frisky and luscious for ’81 with an indescribable sense of purpose.  Fruit runs to black currant leaf and mulberry.  Endless finish; mother rock feels very close.  Fully mature; will keep for ages.
