Welcome to Artisan Wine Depot's Library Wines section.

We understand how difficult it is at times to find that specific bottle that you have been searching for. Sometimes the best selection in wine can come out of someone's very own cellar. Our aim is to connect buyers with independent wine collectors and sellers to find the very best in rare, notable and vintage wines. Through our Library system, we can allow buyers to find that elusive bottle not available anywhere else; and simultaneously help sellers to clear some space to expand their wine collections.

All wine bottles have been inspected and are of course, brand new and sealed.

About This Wine:

The fruit is harvested by hand. The fermentation vessels include a fascinating mix of wooden, cement and stainless steel vats. When finished the wine is pumped to the barrel cellar. Here it is transferred into oak barrique, between 50% and 100% new for the grand vin, Chateau Léoville-Las-Cases, depending on the vintage.


Ratings & Reviews:

98 points Decanter
"1989 was an early year, with flowering three weeks ahead of usual. Now at 30 years old, a floral aspect curls out of the glass, with touches of roses and peonies, followed on the palate by bilberries and blackberries, with a cigar smoke and eucalyptus finish. It's still vigorous in its tannic structure, but it's soft and supple enough to enjoy today. This bottle was recorked by hand at the winery last year, with five people checking every single one of the 5,000 bottles remaining at the chateau. The wines were topped up from magnums of the 1989. 3% Petit Verdot completes the blend - a variety not used in the grand vin since 1996." (JA) (11/2018)
96 Points - Wine Spectator
"Very ripe, with raisin and dried fruits on the nose. You can smell the sun-dried grapes. Full-bodied, delivering firm tannins and a very fresh palate. Long and flavorful, offering currant, berries and all sorts of dark fruits, but turns lightly earthy and floral. This is a thoroughly complex wine. Just starting to really open into the mature 20-year-old wine it is, but such a great life ahead of it. Muscular." (JS, Web-2010)

Jancis Robinson - 17.5 / 20 Points:
"
Brick red. Lots of mushroom and leaf mulch on the nose and palate and still a lovely fruit sweetness even if the primary fruit has gone. Extremely fine grip to the tannins, still has perfect balance and lots of youthful energy even with the mature flavours." (JH) (2/2019)

98 Points & #26 Top 100 Wines of 2016 - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"A very youthful '95. Delicate. Intense aromas of ginger, citrus, candied berry and multigrain bread turn to honey, roasted almonds and graphite on the palate. It's all underscored by a precise structure and creamy texture. Its structure keeps it persistent through the long finish. A picture of precision and intensity. Drink now through 2025. 1,700 cases imported." — BS (Jul 31, 2006)

98 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The real surprise among Krug’s 1996s is the 1996 Vintage, which is drinking beautifully, even among this rarified air of single-vineyard Champagnes. The 1996 Vintage is explosive and creamy, with just the right balance of power, richness and freshness. The mousse is perhaps just a touch less refined than in the 1996 Clos du Mesnil and Clos d’Ambonnay, but it is also perfectly measured with the wine’s exuberant personality. This multi-dimensional, textured Champagne is at the early part of its drinking window and promises to deliver an incredible drinking experience over the coming decades. The take-away from this flight of 1996s from Krug is simple. Although the 1996 Vintage can’t possibly be described as inexpensive, it shows exceptionally well next to its much more expensive brethren and clearly delivers a similar level of quality. Readers who have the opportunity to pick up this wine should not hesitate. It is a gem. No disgorgement date provided. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2036." - (21st Dec 2009)

92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"A similar performance to the bottle earlier this year, the 1999 Meursault Village is a glorious example from Coche-Dury. Here, compared against the 1992, the richness and generosity of the vintage stands out, hints of white truffle developing with time in the glass. The palate is beautifully balanced with hints of dried almond and lychee, long and tender in the mouth with a precise, balletic finish that is totally convincing." - Neal Martin (27th Feb 2001)

90 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 1997 Meursault is a similar showing to the example that Raphael Coche opened when I visited back in January ’14. Perhaps the only slight difference is that the nose is a little more oxidative than the previous bottle, but there is still that lovely balance with fine acidity and that live-wire, honeysuckle finish. Commendable for the vintage, although I would drink bottles sooner rather than later." - Neal Martin (30th Oct 2014)

93 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Refined and classy. Ultraclean and tightly structured white, combining some honey, deftly dosed oak, pear tart, vanilla, cream and spice. Medium-bodied, with a long finish, this is an ager. Best from 2002 through 2015. 275 cases made. — PM" (Issue Oct 15, 2000)

"A muscular, superclean, sleek, ripe and racy white, showing great mineral complexity. Cellar this vin de meditation ("meditation wine") and then taste the silky beauty that should emerge from the low yields. Best after 2005. — PM" (Issue Sep 30, 1999)

93 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Dense, large-scale wine, with thick layers of blackberry, boysenberry, mocha and espresso flavors supported by lush, powerful tannins. Big, smoky, tarry finish. The oak is dominant now, but the stuffing is certainly here. One for the cellar. Syrah. Best from 2007 through 2011. 1,200 cases made." – JM (Nov 30, 2005)

94 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"An alluring nose of Kenya AA coffee and bittersweet cocoa, with polished, racy notes of black currant, fig and loam on the palate. The long, fine-grained finish has a nice minerally spine. Not as dense as the 2003, but with better integration. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2012. 4,000 cases made." – JM (May 15, 2007)

91 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"Chile's first high-profile, high-priced Carmenère has proven itself to be an excellent wine. The '05 has a slight herbal DNA, but there's plenty of oak, vanilla, raw fruit and texture to cover that up. On the palate, blackberry, prune and fine herbs comprise the flavors, while the finish turns thick and dense. With 8% Petit Verdot, Purple Angel continues to press the case for high-end Chilean Carmenère." - Michael Schachner (5/1/2008)
