Tasting Notes

A spectacular success, the opaque plum-colored 2003 Leoville Barton is still on the young side of its plateau of maturity. It exhibits a striking bouquet of forest floor and black currants as well as a full-bodied, exuberant, youthful style, an opaque plum/ruby color, a lot of complexity, and striking depth and richness. This is a profound, stunning effort from Anthony Barton and his team. Bravo! It should continue to provide immense pleasure for 20-30 years.

Score: 96

Intense blackberry and cherry, with hints of currant. Toasted oak and sweet tobacco, too, with roses, lilacs and other flowers. Full-bodied, with masses of tannins yet incredibly long and seductive. Best after 2012.
