Nice looking bottle and cork, but generally musty, funky, not drinkable.

upon opening this gave nothing away, four hours in a decanter and it was still tight and holding everything back. You can sense the wine is there, its just deep asleep at the moment. Very solid and refined tannin and nice fresh acidity give clear signs of the ageing potential that this has (as is a trademark of LB). score is based on the experience today. wait 5-10 more years for the next one.

Still a bit closed out of the bottle. Lots of sour cherry. Very dark. Getting better with more air though...

2000 Château Léoville Barton

St. Julien Red Bordeaux Blend more

5/12/2015 - PSPatrick wrote: 92 points

Best Bottle Dinner at Restaurant Riz in Frankfurt. We drank this Château Léoville Barton 2000 alongside a Château Gruaud Larose 2000. This Léoville Barton looked younger than the Gruaud Larose and had the less expressive nose of the two, offering dark fruit, cucumber and coffee. On the palate the Léoville showed dark flowers, black currant, cherry, cucumber, coffee, chocolate and tobacco, with medium to medium-plus acidity, smooth, ripe, medium-plus tannin and very good length. The Léoville needed some time to open-up, but then became smooth and balanced. Compared with the Gruaud Larose 2000, this Léoville Barton seemed younger, fruitier, riper and broader, yet more reserved, and promised better aging potential, whereas the Gruaud Larose was more open and accessible and gave more drinking pleasure at current stage of the wines. A very good St. Julien! Start drinking from 2018. 92+ for now.

5/16/2015 - GalvezGuy Likes this wine: 92 points

Nice nose of sour cherry, cigar box, earth, leather, and currants. On the palate, rich with bright cherry, tobacco, earth, red currant, and plum. Nice finish with lots of grip and bright acidity. I might be underscoring this. Will improve with more time. Drink or continue to hold.

2007 Château Léoville Barton

St. Julien Red Bordeaux Blend more

5/17/2015 - Claret & CdP Gang Likes this wine: 90 points

Color: dark red
Nose: blackberry, earth, a big brawny nose, we gave this an hour half in the decanter
Palate: wow, ripe with big tannins still, full bodied, a 'big' 07, needs more time to settle, pretty good for a 07

Brick maroon color. Nose of cassis, black currant, cedar, forest floor, damp earth. Still lively on the tongue with good acidity balancing filed off tannins, and layers of blackberry, currant, sweet grip, and leathery notes to savor. Moderately long finish. Very good.

Zachy's Wine Auction - Late Spring 2015; 5/14/2015-5/15/2015 (Le Bernadin Prive): This felt like it was on its last legs. Get that old wine flavor that I enjoy, but that was about it. Not a lot of evolution in the glass or on the palette. I think it's about done.

Dark purple but good clarity. Elegant serious herby nose. Savoury, with leather, graphite and good complexity . V. slight hint of brett but in a good way. Good length. Thick legs. Probably not peaked yet. Will last 10- 15 years more.

Concentrated, with loads of cedar, tobacco and tannin, the fruit is fresh, ripe, clean, sharp and tannic. This classic Bordeaux demands at least another decade in the cellar to come around.

Brisket, Bordeaux, and Rhones: Pretty foursquare, a little herbal which isn't unexpected from LB, and with ample structure, I think it will be more enjoyable with more cellar time.

See previous notes
...However, THIS is the best showing yet of the Barton goddess. Decanted for three hours. Layers of silky tannins. Blackberry, lily, licorice, granite and black tea. The nose shouts, the palate simply soothes. Exceptional elegance and each phase shows literal glycerin. Burlesque. Drink now -.

Great complex nose with red fruit, graphite, spices. Not as closed and tannic as I remember it to be, but of course still grippy and tight. The balance is superb - lots of fruit, freshness and a vibrant, long finish. Great future, but needs time. 93-94+

For stamina. This wine has been impeccably well stored since acquisition upon release. Never seen a temp above 58 and for thirty of those years never above 53. Plenty rich but a pervasive iodine note if you will. 24 hours later of sitting on the sideboard, still very much alive and well. Remarkable.

1989 Château Léoville Barton

St. Julien Red Bordeaux Blend more

5/9/2015 - John Tang Likes this wine: 95 points

Decanted for 2 hours and this is actually necessary for a 1989 wine. The color is old mature Bordeaux, so is the smell. It smells like raisin, blackberry, black currant (cassis), plum, mineral, espresso and light toast. The body is medium but with smooth and silky texture. Long finish, truly delicious, it tastes better than the 1994 Latour which was in pair for the dinner.
