1966 Chateau Leoville-Las Cases, Grand Vin, Saint-Julien, Bottle (750ml)

Shop 'In Stock' Wines
Tasted at the Las-Cases off-line at The Square. For a long time, one of my favourite vintages from the 1960?s, though this bottles suggests that it is beginning to fade. It has a typical nose of cigar box, smoke and even a touch of hickory that turns into Provencal herbs with time. There is something austere and dusty on the palate though the tannins remain quite rigid, lending it a foursquare but not disagreeable finish. It actually improves with further time in the glass and returning after an hour it is almost up to the standard previous bottles demonstrated a decade ago. Tasted February 2011. - NM (Wine Journal) (6/2011)
