If it were not for the prodigious 1996, everyone would be concentrating on
getting their hands on a few bottles of the fabulous 1995 Leoville-Las-Cases,
which is one of the vintage's great success stories. The wine boasts an opaque
ruby/purple color, and exceptionally pure, beautifully knit aromas of black
fruits, minerals, vanillin, and spice. On the attack, it is staggeringly rich,
yet displays more noticeable tannin than its younger sibling. Exceptionally ripe
cassis fruit, the judicious use of toasty new oak, and a thrilling mineral
character intertwined with the high quality of fruit routinely obtained by Las
Cases, make this a compelling effort. There is probably nearly as much tannin as
in the 1996, but it is not as perfectly sweet as in the 1996. The finish is
incredibly long in this classic. Only 35% of the harvest was of sufficient
quality for the 1995 Leoville-Las-Cases. Anticipated maturity:
2005-2025.
