WORST OF THE BEST

1981 was a super vintage for St Julien, I’m willing to buy bus loads of Gruaud Larose or Ducru Beaucaillou, as they’re really fantastic. But Leoville Las Cases can only be the worst of the best 81 St Julien.

Decent nose of floral fragrance and ripe fruits, but the palate wasn’t quite ready yet. I can feel it has a lot of potential, as the fruits were humming along on a loud but low voice, but it was just not quite ready to drink right now. Isn’t this a “never ready” label? Yes you bet!
