Chateau Leoville Barton St Julien 2006
A huge wine. The stunningly complex and perfumed nose has aaromas of pure berry fruit, mocha, spice and reviving minerality,combined with the richness evident in the Langoa. The palate is at thesame time exuberantly rich and enticing as well as being demurelydelicate and fresh with an astoundingly long length. The greatstructure implies that this will require some patience. This is a superblysexy Leoville Barton that has a certain "wow" factor and is a cellarmust-have.

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.
this wine was sampled over a several hour period while in the decanter. At first this wine seems elegant, and quite tight, as it opens it reveals a nose of smokey fruits and meats, tar, leather, spice, black cherries and great length. After the 6 hour mark this wine opened, became multi dimensional, and gained much body, was quite big, and had super length. I was stunned by this wine. Beautiful. Perhaps my favorite 2006 from bordeaux.

This classically made, dense purple-hued wine exhibits enormous potential, but currently it is forebodingly backward, dense, and broad. Once again, proprietor Anthony Barton delivers a wine with super... Robert Parker. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Leoville-Barton 6000ml
The nose is restrained but very intense and concentrated and of stunning class. The wine is very closed on the palate with remarkable texture and a core of fruit. Powerful tannins conceal the wine and hold it together. This will be long lived. Robert Parker 95. Tasted from barrel April '07.

Very balanced and pretty, with violet and currant. Full and silky. Gorgeous. Harmonious. J.S. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Leoville-Barton 3000ml
Der Wein ist von dichtem, dunklen Rotbraun und lässt schon bei der ersten Kontaktaufnahme ein äusserst komplexes Bouquet erkennen. Der Geschmack geht von einer vollen, fleischigen, seidigen Ansprache zu einem tanninreichen, aber köstlich saftigem und sehr langen Abgang über. Ein grosser Klassiker mit schöner Terroirnote.
