Leoville Las Cases 1998 Saint Julien 4 x 75cl / 13%
This lot contains four bottles of Léoville Las Cases 1998 red Bordeaux, a 'super second' growth from the Saint-Julien appellation.
'1998 was a late flowering year but the grapes achieved perfect ripeness by harvest time. It's an excellent vintage that's generally known as a Right Bank year, but is more than holding its own over in St-Julien. At this point we are starting to see what a mature Léoville can do: the edges are softening to a russet colour and the cigar-box edge is apparent, alongside notes of hedgerow, undergrowth, rosemary, black cherry, cassis, and a touch of menthol on the finish. 98/100' Jane Anson, Decanter, tasted 2018.
This lot comes from the temperature-controlled cellar of media businessman and wine enthusiast Lord Evgeny Lebedev, where they have been kept since purchase direct from UK importers.
