"The impressive 1996 Leoville Barton is a classic.Although backward,it exhibits a dense ruby/purple color in addition to abundant black fruit currant fruit,intertwined with spicy oak and truffle like scents.This wine is brilliantly made,full-bodied and tightly structured,with plenty of muscle and outstanding concentration and purity.It should turn out to be a long-lived Leoville Barton (almost all this estate's top vintages have shared that characteristic) and somewhat a sleeper of the vintage.However,patience is required.Anticipated maturity: 2007-2030".
