Intense aromas of currant blackberry and light vanilla. Full-bodied with velvety tannins and a long caressing finish. Layered with everything in the right proportion for the vintage. Excellent. Reminds me of the 1996... Intense aromas of currant blackberry and light vanilla. Full-bodied with velvety tannins and a long caressing finish.

This "super second" lives up to its billing. It is rich and concentrated with dark tannins that lie over the ripe jammy fruit and black rich chocolate flavors.

It is rich and concentrated with dark tannins that lie over the ripe jammy fruit and black rich chocolate flavors. Acidity and wood are there but only just hints after the richness of the fruit. A real magnificent aging wine.

Performing better from bottle than it did from cask this blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon 13% Merlot and 11% Cabernet Franc has put on weight over the last year. It exhibits the classic style of both Las Cases and St.-Julien in its deep black currant notes interwoven with sweet cherries wet stones and toasty vanillin. Made in a structured medium to full-bodied style with superb concentration beautiful purity and admirable symmetry this beauty is one of the strongest efforts of the vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2028. Also tasted: 2004 Clos du Marquis (88)

Supple but a bit youthfully inky with a dusty quality to the moderately sweet fruit. This is a bit dry compared to the young 2006 and one has the impression that the oak tannins are less successfully integrated with the wine's fruit. This concentrated persistent wine really needs seven or eight years of cellaring. 90+
