Jancis Robinson's Purple Pages, February 2008
(18/20) Very reticent nose, great texture and bone dry. This is very confident but still pretty austere. Delicacy on the finish and real density. Long but no bruiser. Wait. The most youthful wine here.

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. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2020.</P>

Wine Spectator, March 2004
Gorgeous aromas of crushed blackberries and flowers. Medium- to full-bodied with well-knit tannins and a silky caressing palate. Long. This is a wonderful wine. Lots of finesse. Best after 2008. 22500 cases made. (JS)

Vinous, June 2004
Good full ruby-red. Black cherry cassis and minerals on the nose. As fine-grained as the 2001 but with deeper more chocolatey flavors of cassis black cherry licorice and minerals nicely framed by harmonious acidity... Good full ruby-red. Black cherry cassis and minerals on the nose. As fine-grained as the 2001 but with deeper more chocolatey flavors of cassis black cherry licorice and minerals nicely framed by harmonious acidity. Finishes impressively long with substantial but fine tannins. Impeccably balanced wine. 90-92 points
