Winespectator 97 Punkte
Amazingly rich and silky. Lots of chocolate and blackberry aromas with hints of raspberries. Full-bodied, with silky, round tannins. Great concentration. Long, long finish. This is the biggest, most powerful ever from Léoville Barton.

found this to be one of the more backward wines of the 2000 vintage and gave it a window of maturity of 2015-2040 when I reviewed it in 2003. In my two recent tastings of it, I changed that window to 2018-2050, which probably says more than the following tasting note could say. This is a behemoth – dense, highly extracted, very tannic, broodingly backward, with a dense purple color and very little evolution since it was bottled 8 years ago. Wonderfully sweet cedar and fruitcake notes are intermixed with hints of creme de cassis, licorice, and earthy forest floor. It is full-bodied and tannic, with everything in place, but like so many wines that come from Leoville Barton, it makes a mockery of many modern-day consumers wanting a wine for immediate gratification. Those who bought it should continue to exercise patience and be proud to own a wonderful classic with five decades of longevity ahead of it.

Dunkles, tiefes Granat mit violetten Reflexen. Traumhaftes Bouquet, Palisandernoten, schwarze Kirschen, reifer Cabernet, viel Cassis. Perfekter, fein gegliederter Gaumen, ein herrliches Spiel ziwschen blauen und schwarzen Beeren, feine Tabakwürznote, Zedernholz, wieder Edelhölzer, wie immer zur Spitze gehörend.
