"This shows so much spice and berry character on the nose. Focused and beautiful. Full body with a clearly outstanding core of fruit and polished tannins. The finish lasts for minutes. Reminds me of the superb 1996....95" JS 02/14 "One of the thrilling successes of the vintage is, not surprisingly, the 2011 Leoville Las Cases.
