96 Points

Thursday, February 14, 2013 - This is an awesome wine. Period. Along side the Langoa Barton 2000, the Leoville Barton hits a notch above on all counts - nose, palate, and finish. When I think of Bordeaux, this is on a short list of definitive examples. So much depth, and yet weightless. So powerful, and yet silky. So expressive of its terroir. So perfectly integrated. So perfectly balanced. So seamless. Awesome.

It's just a costly time of the year. I think leoville Barton ages as well as any Pauillac, and such a great tariff. To bad my '09s won't be in until April. Maybe in another 20 years. Next year I may actually order from Premier Cru, if I have to wait this long. Nice notes and totally concur.
