TN: 2004 Château Léoville Barton (France, Bordeaux, Médoc, St. Julien)

  • 2004 Château Léoville Barton - France, Bordeaux, Médoc, St. Julien (4/3/2024)
    Decanted for four hours, this is classic Bordeaux - mid-weight, fruit in a supporting role, cedar and yes oak, but where it should be, at the end, adding just a dash of spice. The palate is nuanced, each piece properly fitted to the next. It’s not a profound Bordeaux, but rather a perfectly correct one. That’s enough to make me happy.

Thanks David. Well said. I adore this wine. There is something special about it. As you said, it’s not profound but it is incredibly satisfying. If it were a person, it’d be someone comfortable in their own shoes. If it were clothes, a comfortable pair of jeans. Harmonious. That goes a long way for me nowadays. I need to pop one soon. Thank you again,

Thnx for posting the note. Need to echo Todd here. Bought a case on EP. Has always delivered in that understated but elegant Leoville Barton style. Just a lovely wine
