Château Léoville Barton Red Bordeaux Blend St. Julien 2004
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)

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.

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.

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

Bright red-ruby. Deep aromas of black raspberry, black cherry, leather, smoke and flowers. Dense but juicy, with lovely finesse and flavor intensity.
