WS 94
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, January 2007
A beautiful wine with layers of ripe fruit berry cedar vanilla and light spice. Full-bodied with silky tannins and a long finish. Very very classy stuff.--'95/'96 Bordeaux retrospective. Best after 2008. -JS

Approachable with layers of strawberries and red fruits. A rich voluptuous Barton that should be ready in 2-3 yrs. Then blind in April 2005. A very attractive nose with a slight under-ripeness that lends it freshness and vitality. The palate is well-balanced with toasty new oak. But quite backward compared to others with a dense sweet, chocolate tinged finish. Quite modern in style on the surface, but you can tell that there is a robust classic structure underneath. Drink from 2008.

Somewhat closed and reticent after bottling but still impressive this 1995 possesses a dark ruby/purple color as well as an oaky nose with classic scents of cassis vanillin cedar and spice. Dense and medium to full-bodied with softer tannin and more accessibility than the 1996 but not quite the packed and stacked effect on the palate the 1995 is an outstanding textbook St.-Julien that will handsomely repay extended cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2025.</P>

Very good ruby-red. Currant tobacco game and roasted nuts on the expressive nose. Full supple and sweetly oaky. Also wears its oak more gracefully. Very long on the finish with ripe tongue-coating tannins. 91 points
