Heiner Lobenberg über:
Chateau Leoville Barton 2eme Cru 2003


Lobenberg: Fast schwarz. In der Nase sofort Teer und intensive, drückende schwarze Frucht, ungemein intensiv. Im Mund ebenfalls enorm hohe Intensität, schwarze Früchte, sattes, sehr rundes Tannin, viel schwarze Kirsche, Brombeere, der ganze Gaumen wird ausgekleidet, imposanter Nachhall. Einer der Top-Weine der Appellation wenn nicht sogar des Jahres. Großer Wein. 97+/100


Winespectator über: Chateau Leoville Barton 2eme Cru

-- Winespectator: Intense blackberry and cherry, with hints of currant. Toasted oak and sweet tobacco too. Roses and other flowers, such as lilacs. Full-bodied, with masses of tannins yet incredibly long and seductive. Best after 2012. 18,330 cases made. 98/100


Suckling über: Chateau Leoville Barton 2eme Cru

-- Suckling: This has intense aromas of souis bois, mushroom, flowers, spices and ripe berry tart. Full and very rich, with layers of round tannins and intense flavors. This is opulent and wild. So good for a baby but wait until 2017. 98/100


Parker über: Chateau Leoville Barton 2eme Cru

-- Parker: A spectacular success, the opaque plum-colored 2003 Leoville Barton is still on the young side of its plateau of maturity. It exhibits a striking bouquet of forest floor and black currants as well as a full-bodied, exuberant, youthful style, an opaque plum/ruby color, a lot of complexity, and striking depth and richness. This is a profound, stunning effort from Anthony Barton and his team. Bravo! It should continue to provide immense pleasure for 20-30 years. 96/100


Jeb Dunnuck über: Chateau Leoville Barton 2eme Cru

-- Jeb Dunnuck: The 2003 Léoville-Barton was sensational on release, closed down slightly for 4-5 yeas, and is just now starting to emerge from its adolescence and is on the early side of its drink window. Possessing a saturated purple/ruby color as well as a sensational bouquet of crème de cassis, charcoal, lead pencil shavings and damp earth, it’s full-bodied, gorgeously concentrated, balanced and long. While from a freakishly hot vintage, it has terrific purity, as well as complexity. In short, it’s a blockbuster, yet classic wine from Anthony Barton that’s going to provide incredible amounts of pleasure over the coming 2-3 decades. 96/100


Weinwisser über: Chateau Leoville Barton 2eme Cru

-- Weinwisser: Tiefes Granat, lila Rand. Delikates Bouquet, sehr nobel, dezente, dunkle Karamellnoten, Tahiti-Vanille, Rauch, Zedern, Lakritze. Satter, dichter Gaumen, sehr fleischig, aber auch fein, ausgeglichene Adstringenz, im Finale schwarze Kirschen, sehr nachhaltig, eine Sonderklasse von der Eleganz her trotz des enormen Alterungspotenzials
