CHÂTEAU LÉOVILLE BARTON 1990

Saint-Julien. 2ième Cru Classé
1 x scuffed label

Believe it or not, the 1990 Leoville Barton can actually be drunk - something that cannot be said about the broodingly backward, still excruciatingly tannic 1982. The exceptionally concentrated 1990 reveals more polished, sweeter tannins along with a big, sweet kiss of black currant, forest floor, cedar, and spice box notes. While it still has some tannins to shed, this full-bodied, powerful, long wine is approachable. It should continue to evolve for another two decades. June 2009 Drink: 2009-2029 WA 93+
