1990 Chateau Leoville-Las Cases Bordeaux - 96 Pts!
My notes on the 1989 and 1990 wines have been consistent over the last three years. The 1989 continues to lose ground although it is obviously an outstanding wine while the 1990 continues to escalate in quality. The 1990 continues to put on weight and richness and it now clearly appears to be the superior vintage for Leoville-Las-Cases. The 1990 reveals a dense dark purple color followed by a sweet pure nose of black fruits minerals lead pencil and vanillin. Broad expansive flavors come across as rich pure and concentrated but never heavy or coarse. Beautifully integrated tannin and acidity are barely noticeable in this classic full-bodied velvety-textured youthful yet exceptional St.-Julien. The 1990 is more fun to taste than the 1989 but readers should not interpret that comment to suggest it is ready to drink. This wine needs another 5-6 years of cellaring after which it should last for 20-25 years. RP
