    (Chateau Léoville-Barton St Julien) A deep red hue with a touch of tawny. Absolutely classic on the nose, intense mineral fruit, with some notes of caramel. It still has plenty of fruit, lovely tannins and pepper-like acidity. Elegant, medium bodied, and delicious. Classically styled and structured. A touch more impressive than my last tasting about eighteen months ago.

    (Chateau Léoville-Barton St Julien) A similar colour here. Complex, more curranty blackcurrant fruit this time. Again some new oak. Soft but well structured on the palate. Firm but integrating tannins, smoky and curranty fruit. Rich wine, with a spicy, curranty, roasted herb, cigar-smoke finish. Good complexity.
