Full ruby color. Blueberry, roasted nuts, mint and a hint of game on the nose. Fat, sweet and multilayered; rich, ripe and deep. Offers a generous mouthfeel for a young 96 from the Medoc. Substantial ripe tannins spread out over the palate. Very lon... Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1996 Leoville-Barton 750ml

A well-structured, racy red. Lovely, fresh aromas of raspberries, cream and currants. Medium- to full-bodied, with well-integrated tannins which are firm yet silky. One of the more reasonably priced top '96s. Best after 2000. (JS) Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1996 Leoville-Barton 750ml

Wild berries on the nose with an exotic flower undertone. Full-bodied with velvety tannins and a long rich finish. Gorgeous red. Give it time.-- 95/ 96 Bordeaux retrospective. Best after 2008. -JS Wine Spectator.

Winemaker's Notes:

Berry Bros & Rudd review: There can surely be few other estates that are as sought-after or as<br/>consistently brilliant as Léoville-Barton and 1996 was an outstanding<br/>year for this impressive Second Growth. This wine highlights St<br/>Julien'ssuccess in 1996 with a richly opulent style that will give<br/>incredible satisfaction for years to come. This may not be as flamboyant as the<br/>1995 and still very much in its youth, but it is already approachable and will<br/>provide sublime drinking until 2030.
