Description

An enormous, masculine, backward wine, Leoville-Barton's 1996 exhibits an opaque black/purple color, and sweet, earthy, prune, and blackcurrant aromas intertwined with scents of licorice and Asian spices. Enormous and full-bodied, with a sweet mid-palate and mouthsearing tannin in the finish, this exceptionally dense, powerful, layered wine will require significant patience. Its explosive power and richness may push this wine's ultimate rating into the mid-nineties. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2040. Robert Parker

Tasting note

1996年的巴頓酒莊展現了聖朱利安產區的宏偉風土。酒體呈深邃的暗紅寶石色,香氣中濃郁的黑醋栗與精緻的雪松橡木相映成趣。品嚐時,豐富的黑櫻桃果味與活潑的酸度交織,單寧豐富而柔滑,中段飽滿。酒精平衡得宜,餘韻悠長,帶有黑醋栗和煙草葉的香氣。這是一款結構深邃、層次分明的佳釀,展現出優雅的陳年潛力。

The 1996 Chateau Leoville Barton is a testament to the grandeur of Saint-Julien terroir. This vintage exudes a deep, dark ruby hue, with a bouquet rich in cassis and framed by refined cedary oak. On the palate, it reveals sumptuous dark-cherry fruit, elevated by a vibrant acidity. The tannins are abundant yet velvety, contributing to a concentrated mid-palate. The wine is impeccably balanced with alcohol, and the lingering finish is adorned with notes of cassis and tobacco leaf. A wine of exceptional depth and structure, it promises to evolve gracefully.
