A long-time client of Iron Gate, this consignor first became interested in wine when he attended a Wine Spectator’s tasting, and someone opened a 1988 Tignanello. The bouquet and palate were an amazing shock to his senses. He began collecting fine wine in 2008 and built his cellar shortly after that. Wines were purchased through the LCBO and SAQ and stored in a temperature and humidity-controlled cellar.
The wine in this lot has a score of 96 from Robert Parker and the following tasting note -One vintage that was missing from my extensive vertical earlier this year was the 2001 Léoville Las Cases, and when curiosity got the better of me, I opened a bottle from my own cellar. Unwinding in the glass with aromas of cassis, cigar wrapper, pencil shavings and classy new oak, it's medium to full-bodied, deep and concentrated, with a layered core of vibrant fruit, ripe structuring tannins and a long, penetrating finish. Youthful and a little aloof, it's a classic Las Cases that is just at the very beginning of a long drinking window. It would be fascinating to compare the 2001 directly with the much-lauded 2000, as the two are very close in quality to my palate.
