2003 Château Léoville Barton St. Julien Red Bordeaux Blend

Decanted in bottle for three hours before serving. This wine was wonderful. Classic LB earth coupled with the exuberant fruit of the vintage. The wine is in a terrific place right now but will last for a fair bit longer. Will be very interested to try this again in five years or so.

It was non-descript. It's a fine wine, but nothing made me stand up and take note of the wine. Everything (fruit, nose, finish) was somewhat muted, and not in an Old World, complex way, just a little short of what one might hope for from a generally superior pinot. Perhaps it will gain something with some air or some time. But out of the bottle, fine but not more than fine.
