Next, this Cabernet and m erlot-dominated blend is refined in French oak for eighteen months. What emerges is a structured, austere, powerful, classic style of St. Julien with tremendous aging potential. In fact, common knowledge suggests waiting 15 to 20 years before enjoying your first bottle, placing the 1982 and 1996 within a perfect drinking window. ✦ Leoville Las Cases St. Julien 1996 W a 98 » $395 "A profound Leoville Las Cases, it is one of the great modern day wines of Bordeaux… As this wine sits in the glass it grows in stature and richness.
