Three .750s, $275.00 each!

1975-This is one of the great successes of the vintage. However, those with modern day tastes for soft, easy going, supple wines may not enjoy the 1975 Leoville Las Cases. Why? It is a tannic, backward, old style wine cut from the mold of such vintages as 1948 and 1928. The color is a dark ruby garnet, with a hint of amber at the edge. The nose offers up distinctive mineral, lead pencil, sweet black currant scents with flinty overtones. Full bodied, thick and concentrated, as well as atypically muscular and powerful, this should prove to be one of the longest lived wines of the vintage. There are sensational levels of richness and intensity. While the vintages tough tannin level ensures another twenty to thirty five years of longevity, the wine may dry out by that time. I thought the wine would be at its peak by the mid nineties, but it still needs another five to eight years of cellaring. It is very impressive, albeit backward and hard. Drink: 2010 to 2037. Last tasted 3/02. Rating 92+. RP
