IMG_0925

This is the 2nd wine of the Classified 2nd Growth, Leoville Las Cases in Bordeaux.

Beautifully mature. Well into its secondary phase.

Chocolate and violet aromas.

Leather, pencil shavings. Truffled mushrooms.

Fine tannins and still a great mouth feel.

Can last longer. Very happy with this.

$70 at Sterling Wine Auctions

Tasted 7th November 2012

About Perth Wine Enthusiast

Casual observations of a Perth wine enthusiast. I am a recently turned 40 husband to a wonderful wife and father to 3 fantastic children. When work and family are not occupying me, my thoughts frequently turn towards two of my other passions in life, wine and food.
