2017 Château Léoville-Las-Cases, Cru Classé St-Julien

What a gorgeous nose: expressive and floral, with liquorice and stones and a touch of freshly tanned leather. It's elegant and fresh, with so much finesse but still a stunning power behind it. The texture unfurls beautifully, with elegance and density and so many levels.

TASTING NOTES

This is very muscular with formed and bright tannins that give the wine super drive and length. The tannins build on the finish with a lovely integration of black fruits. Serious for the vintage.
