    (Leoville Barton) Had this wine the other night. Nothing wrong with it. Good chunky Cabernet fruit, some earthy minerality, slightly soupy and stewed as it warmed up. Pretty balanced. Just an ok wine. Boring. The C-Span of wine. Could be the lameness of 1995 Bordeaux as I have never had one that has done anything for me at all.

    (Chateau Léoville-Barton St Julien) A deep, ruby garnet colour. The nose screams young wine - ground coffee, toffee oak and ripe blackcurrant fruit. On the palate some rich fruit with balanced acidity and soft tannins which only really attack on the finish. Delicious, and just about ready for drinking.
