2001 Ch. Léoville-Barton, St Julien

Ch. Leoville-Barton, St Julien
Léoville-Barton has produced another truly superb wine in 2001. With pure, spicy fruit in perfect harmony with creamy oak and ripe tannins, this tautly-structured wine is Claret at its very best.Château Léoville Barton

Léoville Barton 2001 - Immediately classy nose. Very polished texture. The word ‘pomade’ springs to mind. Smooth and masculine. Talk about personification… This should not disappoint. So long as you are looking for a bone-dry wine. A second bottle showed a little more flesh and was probably worth 17.5 points.

Ch. Leoville-Barton, St Julien
Consistent from bottle (I tasted it three times), this is an outstanding offering, although not quite at the prodigious level of the 2000. Civilized and approachable for a young Leoville-Barton, it exhibits a saturated plum/purple color along with classic Bordelais aromas of damp earth, creme de cassis, smoke, vanillin, and tobacco. Medium to full-bodied and rich, with high but well-integrated tannin, and a long, 40+ second finish, it should turn out to be a brilliant effort, and one of the stars of the Medoc. However, patience is essential.

Rated 5 out of 5 by The good stuff It is notable that this is one of the few vintages of LB that is recommend by the estate to drink now. A wonderful St Julien, which balanced cassis and blackberry fruits with leather tar and a hint of liquorice. Needs about 1-1.5hrs decant to show it's best. This was on the table at Christmas and was the wine of the night. I like it enough to work through the case slowly - it keeps getting better. Enjoy. 09 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Give it a little more time to realise its full potential All the usual cab Sauv blend tones of cassis, cigar box and soft leather. A bit of grip still there on the finish (but nothing challenging) so worth another couple of years in the cellar. But even so, very drinkable now. A strong recommendation. 15 August 2014
