An excellent example of a St Julien when I drunk it in December 2005. Cherry, red fruits coupled with mint and pepper with a medium finish meant it was a very easy wine to sup.

Excellent. Still youthful, took hours to open up.

Absolutely spectacular from bottle, with massive power and structure, the saturated purple-colored 2000 Leoville Barton is one of the greatest wines ever made at this estate. The wine has smoky, earthy notes intermixed with graphite, camphor, damp earth, jammy cassis, cedar, and a hint of mushroom. Enormous, even monstrous in the mouth, with tremendous extraction, broodingly backward, dense flavors, and copious tannins, this should prove to be one of the longest-lived wines of the vintage and one of the most compelling Leoville Bartons ever made.

In 2003, Anthony Barton made his greatest wine ever from this second-growth St. Julien estate. Bartonrsquo;s family purchased the estate in 1826; today, it encompasses just more than 111 acres of vineyards, comprising about 72 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 20 percent Merlot and 8 percent Cabernet Franc. The wines, made at the Langoa Barton winery, are fermented in temperature-controlled wooden vats and aged for about 18 to 20 months in as much as 60 percent new French oak barrels.

Amazingly rich and silky. Lots of chocolate and blackberry aromas with hints of raspberries. Full-bodied, with silky, round tannins. Great concentration. Long, long finish. This is the biggest, most powerful ever from Léoville Barton. Best after 2012... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2000 Leoville-Barton 1500ml

(Barrel tasting) Fantastic aromas of currants, black licorice and berries. Fresh flowers. Light smoke. Big and velvety with loads of fruit. Long. Seems like another 2003; wait and see.

Deep ruby. Wonderfully perfumed nose offers cassis, minerals, tobacco, flowers, mocha and truffle. Bright, mineral-driven and concentrated, with terrific underlying backbone giving energy and definition to the dark berry, mineral and chocolate flavors. Therersquo;s a floral lift here thatrsquo;s exhilarating to find in the very ripe 2005 vintage. Finishes very long and classy, with a firm tannic spine. An outstanding vintage for this wine.

Another prodigious, but brutally tannic, offering from the affable Anthony Barton, the inky/blue/black-hued 2005 Leoville Barton exhibits a sensational perfume of charcoal, burning embers, underbrush, cedar, creme de cassis, and subtle toasty oak. Painfully concentrated (much like the 2000 was at the same stage), with full body, admirable purity, and several boatloads of muscular tannin, this St.-Julien is built for 50ndash;60 years of cellaring. Its purity and precision are typical of todayrsquo;s winemaking, but Barton is certainly not making a wine for near-term gratification. This is another 2005 that will require enormous patience. Anticipated maturity: 2020ndash;2065.

What can you say about Anthony Barton? He has made yet another classic wine that will not be approachable for a decade, but will last 50 or more years. The inky/blue/purple-colored 2005 Leoville Barton offers up aromas of forest floor, cedar, spice box, black currants, and background oak as well as smoke. Boasting massive concentration, full body, and exceptional purity, but excruciatingly tannic and backward, this cuvee is meant for those with 19th century tastes, but also exhibits the purity and precision of modern winemaking. Patience is demanded with this beauty as it will take many years to approach any level of accessibility/maturity. Anticipated maturity: 2020ndash;2060+.
