(10-1995).
The 1978 Las Cases has taken on a garnet hue with some dark ruby tints. The nose is more complex and penetrating than the flavors. The wine offers classic, mineral, lead pencil, smoky, earthy scents, with plenty of ripe fruit, and none of the vegetal herbaceousness that many 1978s have begun to exhibit. The attack offers good ripeness, medium to full body, higher acidity than many more recent vintages, and considerable tannin in the hard finish. Although this wine possesses outstanding complexity, the high tannin level may never fully melt away.

(12-1990). Ruby Red. Slightly vermilion. Brown tints. Good intensity. Brilliant. Just. Intense. Complex and fine. Rich shades of ripe fruit, caramel, wood, spices (clove), cedar. Many look. Just. Intense. Pointe a little warm, vanilla and fruity. Note licorice. Palatable and relatively compact. Net attack. Flexible development, distinguished and remarkably balanced on a drawing of a straight shape and structure intense, very fleshy, very soft, plump, energetic and focused. Evolution towards a final flavors of very ripe fruit, fresh cream, slightly austere tannins. But what matter! To monitor and keep. A big 78 very typical Cabernet.

Leoville Las Cases
Jean-Hubert Delon is not lacking in passion nor discipline. The vintages who marched during the past quarter century testify for him. In the Saint-Julien appellation, whether the wines are from in important vintage or a less significant one, they are without a doubt amongst the best. A property absolutely exemplary in the Bordeaux region. The largest of the three Léoville is certainly the greatest in quality and, in the opinion of many, it should be among the first growths. Michel Delon, the "Lord" as he was known, is largely responsible for this recognition. Since 1976, when he succeeded his father, he worked to reconstruct the drainage of land, to modernize and expand the winery, monitor the performance of its vines. He had this deep attachment to land and work values. His son Jean-Hubert took over in 2000, following his disparition.Las Cases is a  typical Saint-Julien of rare nobility of expression and has a breathtaking structure.
