Grand Vin de Léoville du Marquis de Las Cases 2012 – Saint-Julien – 2ème Grand Cru Classé

The nose is complex, elegant and harmonious. It reveals notes of plum, blackberry and blackcurrant combined with elegant and harmonious oaky notes and a touch of tobacco. The palate is well done, beautifully large, complex, fleshy, aromatic (beautiful palette), subtle, elegant, powerful, typical, gourmand, round and offers a beautiful velvety and slightly creamy texture. Beautiful expression of fruit. In the mouth it expresses notes of ripe fruit, plum, cherry and blackberry associated with a touch of fig and beautiful wooded/toasted notes that brings roundness in the mouth. The tannins are well done, firm and elegant. Good length and aftertaste.
