Château Léoville-Las-Cases, St-Julien, 2nd growth 1992
Many of the '92s are giving a lot of pleasure just now. This is one of the best I've tried so far - a fine wine for the year from Las-Cases. A very deep, glossy colour then loads of blackcurrant and plum fruit on the nose. Nice weight in the mouth with little sign of dilution. A good, chewy texture, plenty of soft, already integrated tannin, good, rugged fruit and a nice lemony acidity in the long finish. Most enjoyable, classy, claret and well worth trying though it lacks some complexity. I imagine this has several more years of life ahead of it too. (06/98)
