Tasting Notes Leoville Las Cases 1982

95+

I have had perfect bottles of this cuvee, but, perplexingly, the bottles from my cellar tend to be broodingly backward and require plenty of coaxing. This huge wine is, in many ways, just as massive as Leoville Barton, but it possesses a greater degree of elegance as well as unreal concentration. Classic lead pencil, cassis, kirsch, cedar, and spice characteristics are abundant in both the nose and full-bodied flavors. The tannins are still there, and, at least from my cellar, this 1982 does not appear to have changed much in the last 10-12 years. One wonders how much patience admirers of this brilliant St.-Julien will continue to exhibit. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2050. Release price: ($160.00/case)

Tasted at Pebbles/Zachy’s 1982 dinner in Hong Kong. The Leoville Las-Cases ’82 was once such a curmudgeonly Saint Julien. It has a delineated bouquet with tobacco, cloves and sous-bois – a little conservative when compared directly against Gruaud Larose. It is well balanced on the medium-bodied palate with broody black, tertiary fruit. There is a palpable stoicism to the Las-Cases ’82, an aloofness and distance that denies the imbiber a personal bond with the wine that is more impressive than pleasurable. Having tasted the 1986 Las-Cases just a few days before, I find that the ’86 has more completeness and persistency. Tasted November 2012.
