Ch. Léoville Barton (0.75 L)
WA: This impressive wine is a classic. Although backward, it exhibits a dense ruby/purple color in addition to abundant black currant fruit intertwined with spicy oak and truffle-like scents. The wine is brilliantly made, full-bodied, and tightly-structured with plenty of muscle and outstanding concentration and purity. It should turn out to be a long-lived L¿ªoville Barton, and somewhat of a sleeper. However, patience will be required. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2030.
