Wine Advocate Tasted at BI Wine & Spirits' 10-Years-On tasting, I tasted two bottles of the 2007 Leoville-Las Cases since the first bottle was not faulty, but did not feel right to me. I requested a second bottle, and it was completely different. The 2007 has a very backward bouquet with blackberry, bilberry, tobacco and marine-like aromas that blossom in the glass given adequate aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannin, layers of blackberry and boysenberry fruit, sea salt, black pepper and plenty of tobacco towards the long and sustained finish. I would be inclined to give this a year or two in bottle, unlike most of the other Saint Julien wines this vintage, because there is a class act here. Tasted February 2017
