Reviews for 1996 Leoville-Barton Bordeaux Blend

WA 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, April 1999
This impressive wine is a classic. Although backward it exhibits a dense ruby/purple color in addition to abundant black currant fruit intertwined with spicy oak and truffle-like scents. The wine is brilliantly made... This impressive wine is a classic. Although backward it exhibits a dense ruby/purple color in addition to abundant black currant fruit intertwined with spicy oak and truffle-like scents. The wine is brilliantly made full-bodied and tightly-structured with plenty of muscle and outstanding concentration and purity. It should turn out to be a long-lived Leoville Barton and somewhat of a sleeper. However patience will be required. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2030.</P>

Full ruby color. Blueberry roasted nuts mint and a hint of game on the nose. Fat sweet and multilayered; rich ripe and deep. Offers a generous mouthfeel for a young '96 from the Medoc. Substantial ripe tannins spread out... Full ruby color. Blueberry roasted nuts mint and a hint of game on the nose. Fat sweet and multilayered; rich ripe and deep. Offers a generous mouthfeel for a young '96 from the Medoc. Substantial ripe tannins spread out over the palate. Very long ripe aftertaste. 92 points

Wild berries on the nose with an exotic flower undertone. Full-bodied with velvety tannins and a long rich finish. Gorgeous red. Give it time.--'95/'96 Bordeaux retrospective. Best after 2008. -JS
