Good red-ruby. Currant, plum and smoky oak on the nose. Fat, suave and smooth; not a powerful style but offers lovely depth of flavor. Finishes with rather smooth tannins and good length.

Good berry, mineral character, with a hint of chocolate. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a fresh finish.

Unassuming nose, soft.
Soft tannins, cedar, plum, cassis somewhat green and vegetal, medium but pleasant finish.
Overall an unassuming wine, a pleasant bordeaux but not impressive.

A great bottle but not the best of it's class. That said I'm not complaining. With a rich filet roast it's divine. I'm keeping for another 2 years before trying again.

A lighter, medium ruby shaded vintage of Leoville that has some classic Baron elements of cedar box, sweet raspberry, iron and toast, but unfortunately it is a bit too austere throughout the palate to merit an outstanding performance. For fans of early maturing, savory St. Julien
