Château Léoville Barton Red Bordeaux Blend St. Julien 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Parker review: We were very impressed by the sweet, succulent raspberry and cream personality<br/>of this wine. It's very classic in style, with a good balance of acidity,<br/>tannins and fruit. A pronounced nose of spicy rasberriesleads to complex<br/>layers ofage-worthy fruit on the palate and a sumptuous, dense fruit<br/>finish.<br/><br/><br/><br/>'...the 2004 Langoa Barton exhibits deep, concentrated, chunky, black currant<br/>and cherry fruit intermixed with notions of forest floor...This impressive,<br/>full-bodied, powerful, ageworthy St.-Julien is atypically backward and<br/>brooding.'<br/><br/>(Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, Jun 2007)<br/><br/>(Decanter- Nov 2007-Medoc 2004, the results: 4/5 stars)

In the reign of Louis XIII, in 1638, a certain Jean de Moytié, Counsellor of the Bordeaux parliament and a noble bourgeois of the town, owned a beautifully sloped gravelly vineyard near the River. This place, as was the tradition, was named after its owner and thus became the “Mont-Moytié.” Historically, the production of Mont-Moytié was among the first Médoc wines, along with the “Château de Margaux”, the “Tour de Saint-Lambert” or the “Château de La Fitte” in Pauillac and the “Château de Calon”, in Saint-Estèphe, which were all established before the period of civil war known as La Fronde (1648-1653.) These were the first estates to appear in the Médoc parishes, which were later to become commune appellations. Read less

I recommend decanting this wine for 6 + hours to experience a stunning wine. This wine at first, was light and almost seemed diluted. A nose of roses, violets, with minerals and cedar. After 4 hours and a few sips, the wine started to take shape, and gain a nice length. We consumed this wine after 6 hours, and it had changed from light and subtle, to a big, full bodied, meaty, smoked dark fruits, multi dimensional heavy hitter of a wine. Also, a long, long, finish. Wonderful!

This wine is drinking really well right now. Nice dark currants, forest floor, earthy, bramble fruits.

Sehr tiefes Granat. Faszinierende warme, explosive Frucht, viel Brombeeren und Cassis mit tiefer St. Julien-Zederwürznote, facettenreich. Saftiger Gaumen, sehr geschmeidige, feste Tannine, wiederum eine tolle Fruchtaromatik. Im Extrakt Lakritze sowie Rauc

Bright red-ruby. Deep aromas of black raspberry, black cherry, leather, smoke and flowers. Dense but juicy, with lovely finesse and flavor intensity. Notes of mocha, chocolate and leather linger nicely on the lively finish, which features substantial... Stephen Tanzer's IWC.

Currant and dark chocolate, with hints of mineral. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long, caressing finish. Balanced. A more delicate and refined style. Best after 2011. 21,250 cases made. -JS Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2004 Leoville-Barton 750ml

This is an impressively endowed vin de garde that should age effortlessly for 20-30 years. How Anthony Barton continues to fashion uncompromisingly primordial Bordeaux that are always among the biggest and densest of all the St.-Juliens is beyond me,... Robert Parker.
