Château Langoa Barton St. Julien Ex-Negociant 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

"...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...94." WA 4/08.

After not having given Bordeaux's much traction, a friend and I decided that we needed to see what all the fuss was about and picked up a bottle of the 05 Leoville Barton and brought it with us to a great steakhouse in San Diego. We had it with filet and it was nothing short of amazing. Silky, velvety, a touch of smoke, and an elegant finish that went down, down, down...

Undoubtedly one of the most majestic wines ever made at Leacute;oville-Barton, this behemoth displays even more power and structure than it did last year. A prodigious, saturated purple-colored effort, it boasts layers of concentrated fruit along with notes of graphite, camphor, damp earth, and jammy cassis. Immense, even monstrous in the mouth, it possesses awesome extraction and richness, but the boatload of tannin will keep it from being fully appreciated for at least a decade, possibly longer. It is an authentic vin de garde for patient wine connoisseurs. Amazing vino! Anticipated maturity: 2012ndash;2040.

(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.

This is the biggest, most powerful ever from Leacute;oville Barton. Amazingly rich and silky. Lots of chocolate and blackberry aromas, with hints of raspberries. Full-bodied, with silky and round tannins. Great concentration. Long, long finish. Best after 2012.

Good deep red-ruby. Floral, scented nose shows cassis, violet and licorice. Very lush and rich but with terrific vinosity; large-scaled for this wine but impeccably balanced, with a strong mineral character. Anthony Barton was not a late harvester in 2005, and this wine boasts lovely verve as a result. Finishes with big but broad tannins and superb persistence. Built for a long and graceful evolution in bottle.

Saturated medium ruby. Very black aromas of cassis, licorice and violet, plus a whiff of game. Dense, thick and youthful, with a compelling layered texture and major palate impact. But doesnrsquo;t have quite the clarity or class of the rsquo;85 tasted alongside it. Very long, palate-staining finish features big but thoroughly ripe tannins. May ultimately merit a higher score. Drink 2008 through 2025.

The impressive 1996 is a classic for the vintage. Although backward, it exhibits a dense ruby/purple color in addition to abundant black currant fruit intertwined with spicy oak and truffle-like scents. The wine is brilliantly made, full-bodied, and tightly-structured with plenty of muscle and outstanding concentration and purity., It should turn out top be a long-lived Leacute;oville-Barton (almost all this estatersquo;s recent top vintages have shared that characteristic), and somewhat of a sleeper of the vintage. However, patience will be required. Anticipated maturity: 2007ndash;2030.

Good full ruby-red. Black cherry, cassis and minerals on the nose. As fine-grained as the 2001, but with deeper, more chocolatey flavors of cassis, black cherry, licorice and minerals, nicely framed by harmonious acidity. Finishes impressively long, with substantial but fine tannins. Impeccably balanced wine.
