Chateau Leoville Barton 2000 Saint Julien 6 x 75cl / 12.5%
This lot contains six bottles of 2000 Chateau Léoville Barton from Bordeaux's Saint-Julien appellation.
'Undoubtedly one of the most majestic wines ever made at Léoville Barton, this behemoth displays massive power and structure. A prodigous, saturated purple-colored effort, it boasts layers of concentrated fruit along with notes of graphite, camphor, damp earth, and jammy cassis. Immense, even monstrous in the mouth, it posseses awesome extraction and richness, but the boatload of tannin will keep it from being fully appreciated for at least a decade, possibly longer. A modern day classic; it is an authentic vin de garde for patient wine connoisseurs. Amazing vino! Anticipated maturity: 2015-2040 96+/100'
Robert Parker, tasted 2003
This lot comes from the temperature-controlled cellar of media businessman and wine enthusiast Lord Evgeny Lebedev, where the bottles have been kept since purchase direct from UK importers.
