Château Léoville Barton Red Bordeaux Blend St. Julien 1990
Berry Bros & Rudd review: A monster of a wine, that is finally opening up to reveal its superb quality<br/>and charm. Full-bodied, powerful, and loaded with flavours of forest fruits,<br/>plums, cigar box, and vanillin. Robustly structured, with grainy, yet<br/>beautifully integrated tannins. The formidable concentration of the fruit and<br/>tannin will allow for at least another 15 years of graceful ageing. This<br/>can be considered as an exceptional vintage, in par with the 1982.

The history of Langoa and Leoville Barton is the history of a family who have managed to preserve their inheritance for more than 2 centuries. From one generetion to another the wines produced by the two properties have maintained the quality of their classification, offering wines at the very top of their appellation.
Had for thanksgiving, reviewing late. Really stunning. As I recall, the nose was all Brussels sprouts and broccoli and this huge green pepper, this blast of vegetables mixed with some very nice fruits, and the palate was very thought-provoking and complex. Didn't particularly go well with the turkey only because it was so much more than the meal, which was itself quite lavish. A delight and I'm glad our friend shared with us.
