Fill level: Into Neck (IN)Question Mark Grape variety: Bordeaux Blend

Absolutely spectacular from bottle but frightfully closed and backward,with massive power and structure,the saturated purple-colored 2000 Leoville-Barton is one of the greatest wines ever made at this estate,The wine has smoky,earthy notes,intermixed with graphite,camphor,damp earth,jammy cassis,cedar,and a hint of mushrooms.Enormous,even monstrous in the mouth,with tremendous extraction,broodingly backward,dense flavors,and copious tannins,this should prove to be one of the longest-lived wines of the vintage and one of the most compelling Leoville Bartons ever made.However,anyone able to defer gratification for at least a decade should steer clear of this behemoth. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2040.
(96 Points).
