Lot #229. Léoville-Las Cases 1996

Description: Consists of 2 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 99 JL.
"If you have 4 hours of decanting time available, this is a stunning bottle of LLC. It's rich, concentrated, mouth filling, long, intense and packed with character. The wine is powerful, yet not over overwhelming. The fruit is ripe, and tannins and polished, but firm. This finish must last close to 50 seconds. With another decade, this could easily hit 100 Pts." Jeff Leve, The Wine Cellar Insider, Jan 2018
Provenance: The Bijou Cellar
Notes: 1 Nicked capsule, very lightly damp stained, very lightly scuffed labels.
