La Réserve de Léoville Barton Red Bordeaux Blend St. Julien 1995
- Show All (81)
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.
I tasted this excellent wine last weekend together with my best friends and it was one of the best wines I've ever had. A good balanced and not too strong wine who matched exactly my flavor. It's a kind of an earthy minerality taste and the smell is like fresh dark earth after some rain - Brilliant!
I believe that this wine is ready right now. 1995 was a good year for Bordeaux and I am sure this wine can be kept for another 15 years. I opened the bottle with my best friends and we enjoyed it very much. It was well balanced, earthy, leather nose and not over powering.
This wine is tight, would've been better had it not been drunken side by side with an 89 and 90 Mouton-Rothschild :)
Excellent cabernet with an excelent bouquet. Some ripe-blackcurrant fruit with rich flavours and soft tannins. Impressive finish.

Both the 1994 and 1995 Leoville-Barton were tasted on three separate occasions with identical score ranges. Obviously, Leoville-Barton produced one of the top wines in each vintage. Given the modest pricing policy of proprietor Anthony Barton, these ... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1995 Leoville-Barton 750ml
Very good ruby-red. Currant tobacco game and roasted nuts on the expressive nose. Full supple and sweetly oaky. Also wears its oak more gracefully. Very long on the finish with ripe tongue-coating tannins. 91 points Stephen Tanzers IWC.
