This is an impressively endowed vin de garde that should age effortlessly for 20-30 years. How Anthony Barton continues to fashion uncompromisingly primordial Bordeaux that are always among the biggest and densest of all the St.-Juliens is beyond me, but he does it year in and year out. Moreover, when it's time to set the price, he appears to have the consumer foremost in his...

...mind. The 2004 is a classic Leoville-Barton meant for long aging. Concentrated, with loads of smoke, creme de cassis, forest floor, and earthy notes emerge from this impressive, but oh, so backward wine. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030+.

A very successful vintage at this estate, the 2004 Leoville Barton offers a dense, opaque purple color, a big, deep, meaty nose of dried herbs, new saddle leather, licorice, a hint of toasty barrique, and plenty of black currant fruit. It is pure, ripe, slightly austere and tannic, but also substantial in a vintage that rarely produced wines of this size and power. This will be a wine for patient connoisseurs. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2025.
