Château Léoville Barton Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2004

$79.99

This is an impressively endowed vin de garde that should age effortlessly for 20-30 years. How Anthony Barton continues to fashion uncompromisingly primordial Bordeaux that are always among the biggest and densest of all the St.-Juliens is beyond me, but he does it year in and year out. Moreover, when it's time to set the price, he appears to have the consumer foremost in his mind. The 2004 is a classic Leoville-Barton meant for long aging. Concentrated, with loads of smoke, creme de cassis, forest floor, and earthy notes emerge... Robert Parker

Pure, dark black fruit and compote more suggestive of Napa than Bordeaux. Huge, tannic and powerful. I’d let this rest at least 3-4 more years.

Perfect timing. The 2004 is showing beautifully now. Just the right amount of Brett and big floral notes. Great structure and bright fruit.

Nose here has loads of well defined blackcurrant, black cherry, plum, new and rather plush leather and then some red fruit coming through, seems quite youthful. Palate also seems somewhat youthful, tannins are tightly grained, fruit is fresh and firm, still plenty to come from this.

The blended nose of fruit and wood is simply delightful.

K&L Wines Fete du Bordeaux at One Market restaurant. On the nose: black fruit, mint, cassis. Taste: full body black fruit with minerality and smoke on the finish....wine still has some distance to go!

Think this chateau is underrated. They crank out great wine. 04’ is still a little tight but delicious. Red fruit, little smoke, leather-earthy tones with a hint of cedar. Nice smooth finish.

17.5/20 (93/100) Насыщенный аромат с нотами чернослива, чёрной смородины, фиников, кожи, гвоздики и шоколада. Довольно тельное и кислотное вино. Танины интенсивные, но гладкие по текстуре. Можно пить уже сейчас. #dfwe2018
