DescriptionChateau Leoville Barton 2003
"A spectacular success, the opaque plum-colored 2003 Leoville Barton... exhibits a striking bouquet of forest floor and black currants as well as a full-bodied, exuberant, youthful style, an opaque plum/ruby color, a lot of complexity, and striking depth and richness. This is a profound, stunning effort from Anthony Barton and his team. Bravo!" (96 pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #214, Aug. 2014)
"Probably capable of rivaling the 2000, the uncompromisingly made, formidably powerful, masculine, and highly extracted 2003 has an inky purple color to the rim, a big, deep personality with a tight but promising nose of forest floor, creme de cassis, smoke, charcoal, licorice, and perhaps even truffle. It is layered, rich, and set for an exceptionally long life..." (95 pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #164, Apr. 2006)
Estimate: $600 - $800.
