Lot #113. Léoville-Las Cases 1976

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: . NM.
" I noticed that Robert Parker described the 1976 Leoville Las-Cases as 'one of the more successful wines of the vintage,' and I concur. Certainly here it had the edge over the 1976 Ducru-Beaucaillou. The bouquet is fragrant with cedar and black truffle-like scents, quite Pauillac in style and high-toned. There is a sweet core of fruit that betrays the vintage here, quite youthful and saline, a pleasant prickle of spice on the tongue that renders this an atypically 'playful' Léoville Las-Cases." The Wine Adovcate, April 2016
Provenance: The Maestro Cellar
Notes: High shoulder, lightly scuffed capsule, nicked and wine stained label, lightly marked label, sign of seepage.
