Château Léoville Barton Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2001

$105

...Civilized and approachable for a young Leoville-Barton, it exhibits a saturated plum/purple color along with classic Bordelais aromas of damp earth, creme de cassis, smoke, vanillin, and tobacco. Medium to full-bodied and rich, with high but well-integrated tannin, and a long, 40+ second finish, it should turn out to be a brilliant effort, and one of the stars of the Medoc...Anticipated maturity: 2008-2020. Robert Parker

Earthy funk quickly evolved into pencil & cigar box followed by cassis & a lovely faint floral perfume ~ still fairly tannic but showing solid underlying array of dark fruits ~ lovely anniversary wine enjoyed w boiled peanut & wild mushroom pate, butterbean hummus, creamy lump blue crab& artichoke dip, followed by slow roasted NC Duck and Heritage Pork Chop

Quite good overall and fairly elegant but not exactly full of lively energy.

Lovely wine still incredibly young and tight and I would have not guessed that it is already packing 15 years of age. Deep dark color, aromas of coffee, cassis, tobacco, cedar wood, cherry and mint, full body, tight dry tannins, lively acidity, needs a lot of time to open up, and will age for another decade at least. Long dry rich finish. Well crafted and well done. My score 90+, drink to 2027

The prefect gentleman for sure. Super wide bandwidth of flavors. Pepper/fresh Tobacco to stewed fruit
