  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 94

    A beautiful wine, with layers of ripe fruit, berry, cedar, vanilla and light spice. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long finish. Very, very classy stuff.--'95/'96 Bordeaux retrospective.

  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 91

    Somewhat closed and reticent after bottling, but still impressive, this 1995 possesses a dark ruby/purple color, as well as an oaky nose with classic scents of cassis, vanillin, cedar, and spice. Dense and medium to full-bodied, with softer tannin and more accessibility than the 1996, but not quite the packed and stacked effect on the palate, the 1995 is an outstanding textbook St.-Julien that will handsomely repay extended cellaring.

    Very dark lustrous ruby. Quite evolved nose. Scented. Hint of linseed oil. Solid, well balanced, lots of stuffing and the tannins are well managed - almost imperceptible until the very end of the palate.

  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

    Very good ruby-red. Currant, tobacco, game and roasted nuts on the expressive nose. Full, supple and sweetly oaky. Also wears its oak more gracefully. Very long on the finish, with ripe, tongue-coating tannins.

    Bottle from my cellar, opened at CUT Las Vegas. Decanted for about 1 hour, tasted over 2-1/2 hours. Pours a deep ruby. Nose is of slight barnyard funk, cherry, raspberry compote. On palate, great acidity, subdued tannin with flavors of bright red fruit, and a bit of menthol/spice. A very nice wine, but perhaps too much acidity to stand up to rich fare.

    Excellent and drinking beautiful. Mature but lively, classic nose and taste of the finesse st. Julien. A classic, medium body, round and very pleasurable as well with great balance and depth, nicely acidity.

    Med. dark ruby color. Rich complex nose of black fruit, tobacco, minerals, spice, and haberdashery. Soft and elegant entry, full and complex, good grip and balance, well integrated soft tannins. Complex, elegant, long finish. Classic. An outstanding St. Julien that is now fully mature and will continue to drink well for several more years.

    Second bottle I opened - a little disappointing. It was ok, but nothing great.

Leoville-Barton is one of the five St. Julien Second Growth properties designated in the 1855 classification. It is often referred to as a "super-second", though, because its wines are at a quality level approaching that of a First Growth. The chateau is not only considered one of the top wines in St. Julien, but also one of the best values. Leoville-Barton wines have a higher percentage of Cabernet-Sauvignon than other proprietors' blends, a typical blend consisting of 70% Cabernet, 20% Merlot, and 10% Cabernet Franc. Leoville-Barton produces a second label called La Reserve de Leoville-Barton. The Barton family owns both Chateau Langoa-Barton and Chateau Leoville-Barton, having acquired them in the 1820s.
