Tasting Notes Leoville Barton 1996

92

This impressive wine is a classic. Although backward, it exhibits a dense ruby/purple color in addition to abundant black currant fruit intertwined with spicy oak and truffle-like scents. The wine is brilliantly made, full-bodied, and tightly-structured with plenty of muscle and outstanding concentration and purity. It should turn out to be a long-lived Leoville Barton, and somewhat of a sleeper. However, patience will be required. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2030.

A very deep garnet core. A quintessential Saint Julien nose: blackberry, touch of sous-bois, mocha and a light brushing of roasted herbs (thyme.) The palate is full-bodied, very sweet core, almost dare I say too sweet with a slight cassis/fig element that seems incongruous both to Leoville Barton and the style of the vintage. Harmonious, very fine tannins but I would have liked to have seen more reserve and breeding. Impressive nose/perplexing palate. Drink now-2018 Tasted July 2008.
