1999 Château Léoville Barton

Community Tasting Note


90 Points

Sunday, March 3, 2013 - This was a deceptive wine. On opening, seemed a bit light, linear and slightly green. Over a few hours, this wine fleshed out to reveal dark black cherry, minerals, leather and tobacco. The perfume kept increasing as more fruit emerge and green herbs turned to savory. I may slow-ox this next time or decant for a few hours.
