1995 Chateau Leoville-Las Cases 'Grand Vin de Leoville', Saint-Julien, France

Appellation
Saint-Julien

TERROIR
The Grand Enclos de Las Cases contains a lot of complexity. Originating mainly from graves of the Quaternary on gravel-sables and gravelargileous underground, there are also more or less deep and compact clay, sometimes even affluent. The proximity of the Gironde is responsible for this great diversity of soils, created over the course of geological periods by successive superpositions. In addition, the river generates a very specific microclimate that allows for a very early ripening of the grapes and protects the vineyard from frostbite. This combination of geological combinations influences the development of the vineyard and the constitution of the grapes. This unparalleled terroir gives the great wine its unique personality.

MILLESIME 1995
The summer of 1995 saw high temperatures and a marked drought, which was conducive to the production of perfectly ripe grapes. The conditions were also ideal during the harvest and allowed to maintain a very good sanitary state until the end of the harvest.

Harvest Date 19 September to 3 October 1995

Degree: 12.95% vol. / Total Acidity: 3.48 gH2SO4/l

Robert Parker Wine Advocate

The 1995 Léoville Las Cases is a blend of 67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc. Medium garnet colored with a touch of brick, it needs a fair bit of swirling to unlock the intense notes of baked plums, dried mulberries and boysenberry preserves with hints of black truffles, Chinese five spice, unsmoked cigars and dusty soil, plus wafts of beef drippings and cast-iron pan. The medium to full-bodied palate delivers good weight and generous fruit, supported by plush tannins and seamless freshness, finishing with loads of earth, sautéed herbs and mineral-inspired flavors.
