2003 Leoville Barton Bordeaux Blend - France - Bordeaux - St Julien - Red - Second Growth

France - Bordeaux - St Julien

Red Bordeaux Blend - Second Growth
Producer Notes

Leoville-Barton is one of the five St. Julien Second Growth properties designated in the 1855 classification. It is often referred to as a "super-second", though, because its wines are at a quality level approaching that of a First Growth. The chateau is not only considered one of the top wines in St. Julien, but also one of the best values. Leoville-Barton wines have a higher percentage of... More »

Excellent wine almost as soon as opened. Got better over the course of an hour. I am sure it will get better, but given where it is now, going to be hard to wait

The wine is a clear, medium ruby color and has lightly pigmented medium legs. The wine is clean with medium intensity aromas of black fruit (blackberry and plum). There are light aromas of cedar and graphite. The palate is dry with medium + acidity and medium + drying tannins. There is medium alcohol and medium -body and flavor intensity. The black fruit flavours are quite overwhelmed by the acid/tannins. The finish is mediium. The wine is not yet ready for drinking due to its high tannin which may or may not fade before the fruit. The wine is acceptable.

Good, but I'm not sure I understand the excitement. Complex and interesting flavors, but not the power of a big California cabernet.

Ay Caramba, this one is for the books. Opened and decanted for 1 hrs. Deep Purple, A complex nose of Cassis, Raspberry with hints of plum and maybe mushrooms. Full body with a lot of tannins and a very loong finish. Loved it!!

Yep, I am a slut, I dug this wine. The most extroverted, pleasurable and hedonistic effort that I've ever had the pleasure to taste from Leoville Barton is this byproduct of the wildly intense, sun saturated 2003 vintage. What a byproduct it is! While there is still quite a hefty dose of prime grade, creamy toast that is evident in the wine?s nose, this wine is layered and inundated with affluent, copious amounts of fruit that gush from the glass. Mammoth, overt flavors of blackberries, blueberries, cr?me de cassis and flowers cascade through the palate in lush, hedonistic droves. While formidably tannic, the structure is so ripe and sweet that I can'timagine that the evolutionary phases of this wine will ever see real austerity. Should be a legendary Barton

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
