Tasted at Bordeaux Index's annual 10-Year On tasting in London. The 2006 Château Léoville-Barton has a surprisingly rich and opulent bouquet at first, although it calms down with aeration, offering crushed violet and black cherry scents, reminiscent of a fine Margaux. The palate is medium-bodied with a gentle grip in the mouth. Here the class begins to appear with fine balance and poise, but like the Langoa, it lacquers the mouth with tannins and feels very backward, surprising given the vintage. Cellar this for another decade, folks. Tasted January 2016. - Neal Martin

Good bright ruby-red. Pretty aromas of black cherry cassis tobacco leaf minerals licorice and violet. Chewy rich and deep with good dense mid-palate fruit and excellent concentration. Fuller and sweeter than the Langoa... Good bright ruby-red. Pretty aromas of black cherry cassis tobacco leaf minerals licorice and violet. Chewy rich and deep with good dense mid-palate fruit and excellent concentration. Fuller and sweeter than the Langoa. Finishes long and delineated with powerful tannic clout and terrific mineral thrust. A serious 2006 for the cellar. 91(+?) points

Very cool on the nose with blackberry and blueberry aromas surrounded by notes of fresh mint. On the palate the wine is very well structured. Overtones of slate and clay are supported by full lush blackberry and cassis. Medium in body on the mid-palate leading to a long lingering finish of toffee and blackberry. Tasted twice with consistent notes.
