Château Léoville Barton Red Bordeaux Blend St. Julien 1990

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

I underestimated this wine young, as it continues to put on weight and character. In fact, of the great vintages of Leoville-Las Cases, this is one of the more forward wines, largely because of the seamlessness of the 1990 and its exceptionally sweet tannin, combined with relatively low acidity. The color remains a healthy opaque dark plum/purple. The classic Las-Cases nose of sweet black currants, cherries, minerals, lead pencil, and vanilla soars from the glass. Very full-bodied, expansive, and super-concentrated, yet so symmetrical and perfectly balanced (always a hallmark of Leoville Las Cases), this wine seems youthful yet very approachable. Last tasted 12/01

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.
