Wine AdvocateA terrific Clos du Marquis, and clearly of second or third-growth quality, this dark purple-colored wine reveals structure, brooding backwardness, and rich, expansive character. The wine exhibits plenty of sweet kirsch black currant fruit intermixed with high quality, subtle new oak, and steely, mineral characteristics. Rich and medium to full-bodied, with ripe tannin, this is a dazzling Clos du Marquis. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2018.

Wine SpectatorThoroughly well-crafted red. Aromas of berries and asphalt with hints of mint. Medium-bodied, with a complement of polished, silky tannins and a long, caressing finish. Second label of Château Léoville Las Cases. Best from 2000 through 2005.

James Suckling, 1999
