TASTING
The sun has left its mark on this vintage, setting off aromas like sparks: all sorts of floral, balsamic and spicy smells, each more precise and expressive than the last. In the palate, the full, plump, dense body leaves us with an impression of tenderness, of generosity. A harmonious, complex and well-structured wine with a lingering, supple finish.

(Rating: 95+). I found this to be one of the more backward wines of the 2000 vintage and gave it a window of maturity of 2015-2040 when I reviewed it in 2003. In my two recent tastings of it, I changed that window to 2018-2050, which probably says more than the following tasting note could say. This is a behemoth – dense, highly extracted, very tannic, broodingly backward, with a dense purple color and very little evolution since it was bottled 8 years ago. Wonderfully sweet cedar and fruitcake notes are intermixed with hints of creme de cassis, licorice, and earthy forest floor. It is full-bodied and tannic, with everything in place, but like so many wines that come from Leoville Barton, it makes a mockery of many modern-day consumers wanting a wine for immediate gratification. Those who bought it should continue to exercise patience and be proud to own a wonderful classic with five decades of longevity ahead of it. Reviewed by: Robert M. Parker, Jr., Issue date: June 2010. Drinking window: 2018 - 2050.
