Chateau Laoville-Las Cases 'Grand Vin de Laoville du Marquis de Las Cases', Saint-Julien, France 2003 Magnum (1.5L)
Robert ParkerAn incredibly fresh, lively 2003 (the pH is only 3.6 and the alcohol is 13.1%), this wine offers a dense ruby/purple color along with full body and a remarkable nose of black currants, kirsch, lead pencil shavings and vanilla. Opulent, full-bodied and close to full maturity, it is a seamless classic that will age for 15-20 more years. Kudos to the Delon family for such a brilliant achievement in a tricky vintage.
Wine SpectatorThere's a lovely backdrop of charcoal and paving stone notes here, offset by juicy black currant, fig, melted licorice and ganache flavors. Sweet tobacco hints course through the finish, where the cold charcoal steadily turns to lit embers. Impressively maintains some austerity in this vintage.—Blind '01/'03/'05 Bordeaux retrospective (December 2017). Best from 2020 through 2040.
Jeff LeveShowing no signs of heat or overripeness, the wine offers a spicy dark berry, cigar wrapper, wet earth, forest leaf and mint-packed nose. On the palate the wine is round, full-bodied, ripe, and fleshy, but not at all over the top or overripe. The finish remains on the sweet, but fresh fruit side with ample red and black fruits and dusty tannins in the finish.
