2007 Leoville Barton

This muscular, highly-extracted, structured 2007 reveals a boatload of tannin (unusual for this vintage). The wine’s dark ruby/purple color is followed by aromas of cassis, new saddle leather, and forest floor offered in a structured, backward, almost unapproachable format. Give it 2-3 years of cellaring, and if the tannins resolve themselves, it will merit a higher score. It should last for 12-20 years.  Wine Advocate #188 Apr 2010 Robert M. Parker, Jr. 89+ Drink: 2012 - 2032

COMMENTAIRES DE L’ÉQUIPE CHÂTEAU
Ce vin solide et puissant où le feutre du bois ondule sous la langue se nourrit de sa concentration, de sa densité, de ses arômes de fruits mûrs pour déclencher des saveurs persistantes, comme des ondes répétées accompagnant l'harmonie de leur succession, puis s'apaisant sur des tanins apprivoisés et savoureux. Cet équilibre magique donne l'impression d'entrer dans une sorte de brume duveteuse où la volupté et la jouissance domineraient.

Château Léoville Barton 2002

2002 Leoville Barton

Even better from bottle than from cask, and one of the finest wines of the vintage, this dense purple-colored 2002 reveals wonderfully sweet notes of charcoal, fresh mushrooms, smoke, earth, leather, cassis, and cedar. Full-bodied, highly extracted, broodingly backward, dense, and deep, this impressively endowed offering is built for the long term. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2028.

Château Léoville Barton 2004

2004 Leoville Barton

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 from this impressive, but oh, so backward wine. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030+.Wine Advocate #171 Jun 2007 Robert M. Parker, Jr. 92+    Drink: 2015 - 2030

Château Léoville Barton 2006

2006 Leoville Barton

Not surprisingly, this wine is closed, masculine, but super-rich, with a denser, more complete and full-bodied style than its sibling, Langoa Barton. Some toasty vanillin is apparent in the black currant aromas intermixed with tobacco leaf, cedar, and spice box. The wine is full-bodied and has a boatload of tannin, not unusual for this estate, as well as an impressively pure, long finish. Everything is here, but this wine, made with uncompromising vision, is meant to be cellared for an exceptionally long period of time. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2035.

Château Léoville Barton 2008

2008 Leoville Barton

Typically extracted and powerful (which is atypical in a vintage such as 2008), this offering may lack charm, but it is “locked and loaded” with plenty of background oak, huge black cherry and black currant fruit, medium to full body and a boatload of tannin. Forget it for 8-10 years and drink it over the following three decades.Wine Advocate #194 May 2011 Robert M. Parker, Jr. 92 Drink: 2019 - 2049

Château Léoville Barton 2010

2010 Leoville Barton

A splendid showing, much stronger from bottle than it was from barrel, the Leoville Barton is one of the spectacular wines of the vintage. Inky purple to the rim, its huge tannin gives this wine real potential for 30-50 years of longevity. It is a classic, powerful Bordeaux made with no compromise. A superstar of the vintage, the wine has notes of pen ink and creme de cassis, good acidity, sweet, subtle oak, and massive extraction and concentration. I thought it was one of the most backward wines of the vintage two years ago, and nothing has changed in the ensuing upbringing of the wine in cask except that the wine now seems even richer, denser and fuller than I previously thought. The beautiful purity, symmetry, and huge finish of nearly a minute make this one of the all-time great classics from Leoville Barton. Anticipated maturity: 2028-2065+.

Château Léoville Barton 2011

2011Leoville Barton

Firmly structured, dense and medium-bodied with moderate tannin, this austere and backward yet well-endowed 2011 needs 5-7 years of bottle age. Whether the fruit holds up to the tannic structure remains to be seen, but the dark ruby/purple color, purity and impressive depth as well as concentration augur well for future positive development. Forget this 2011 for 5-6 years and drink it over the following 15-20.Wine Advocate #212 Apr 2014 Robert M. Parker, Jr. 88+  Drink: 2019 - 2039
