92 pts WS. A nice St. Julien bordeaux. Blackberry, licorice and oak, all nicely balanced. It does have chewy tannins, so should improve with some more time.

[Decanted for many hours] Concentrated dark color. Sweet restrained nose - plummy and strawberry. Black cherry and buttery back on taste. Rich body. Massive! Full of finesse, but subtle. Medium tannins and acid. Very Bordeaux. Still very closed - not ready to drink. $200

One cannot admire enough proprietor Anthony Barton and his classic, potentially long-lived wines that are models of power, elegance, and longevity � in short, these wines symbolize what makes Bordeaux so world-renowned! Probably capable of rivaling the 2000, the uncompromisingly made, formidably powerful, masculine, and highly extracted 2003 has an inky purple color to the rim, a big, deep personality with a tight but promising nose of forest floor, creme de cassis, smoke, charcoal, licorice, and perhaps even truffle. It is layered, rich, and set for an exceptionally long life, but don�t expect to get a lot of joy even in this somewhat overtly styled vintage for at least another 7-8 years. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2030+.

Full medium ruby. Knockout superripe nose combines black cherry, licorice and exotic spices. Compellingly sweet, lush and complete, with harmonious acids giving the wine lovely vinosity and extending the flavors. Finishes with lush, dusty tannins and superb persistence. A great vintage for Leoville-Barton.

Good deep red-ruby. Floral, scented nose shows cassis, violet and licorice. Very lush and rich but with terrific vinosity; large-scaled for this wine but impeccably balanced, with a strong mineral character. Anthony Barton was not a late harvester in 2005, and this wine boasts lovely verve as a result. Finishes with big but broad tannins and superb persistence. Built for a long and graceful evolution in bottle.

Delivers breathtaking aromas of blackberry, currant, licorice and flowers. Full-bodied, with a solid core of fruit and supersilky tannins. Dark chocolate, currant, berry and licorice follow through. This is racy and beautiful. Best after 2015.

The 1988 Legrave;oville-Barton is a classic example of the vintage. The tannins are hard, but the wine exhibits plenty of depth, an inner core of juicy cassis fruit, firm structure, and very good length. This is an excellent wine, with plenty of rich, deep, curranty fruit to balance out the tannins. Anticipated maturity: 1996ndash;2012.

Saturated medium ruby. Very black aromas of cassis, licorice and violet, plus a whiff of game. Dense, thick and youthful, with a compelling layered texture and major palate impact. But doesnrsquo;t have quite the clarity or class of the rsquo;85 tasted alongside it. Very long, palate-staining finish features big but thoroughly ripe tannins. May ultimately merit a higher score. Drink 2008 through 2025.
