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.

Bordeaux's wet, cool 2004 vintage got lost between the exceptional 2003 and 2005, but Jean-Hubert Delon's St.-Julien estate consistently delivers excellent wines in both great and difficult years. Half of the chteau's 250 acres are planted in the famous Clos Loville Las Cases, a gravelly vineyard that gently slopes down to the Gironde river. The wine was fermented in a mix of stainless-steel tanks, oak vats and cement tanks, then aged for about 18 months in oak barriques.

Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
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.
 

Additional Information

Sub-Region :
Bordeaux
The Bordeaux wine region wide spreads 60 miles around the city and spans three rivers that contribute to the temperate, humid climate. Bordeaux is widely considered one of the great wine regions, an assertion reflected in the quality and pricing of Bordeaux wines. Bordeaux is most famous for red wines, but is also home to the exquisite dessert wine Sauternes. Five red grapes are approved for Bordeaux wine production: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petite Verdot. White wines, including Sauternes, may be made from Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and Muscadelle. View all our items from Bordeaux
Region :
France
Though French wines are the highest valued wines in the world, esteemed wines from Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne were only enjoyed locally until 150 years ago when transportation improvements made them widely available. French wine production is governed by a strict quality-control system, which regulates the grapes used in each region and classifies wineries according to an elaborate cru hierarchy. Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah and Sauvignon Blanc are just a few of the important grape varietals with roots in French soil. View all our items from France
