94 Points Robert Parker
For present consumption, this wine is one of my favorite Leoville-Las Cases. The color is a deep, healthy ruby with purple tints. The wine reveals a classic Las Cases nose of cassis, minerals, lead pencil, and vanilla. Medium to full-bodied, with outstanding concentration and soft tannin, this classically rendered, fleshy, yet stylish wine can be drunk now or cellared for another 15+ years. It is another example where the 1985 may prove to be a modern day clone of the 1953.
