Château Léoville-Barton 2004 – Saint-Julien, 2ème Grand Cru Classé

The nose is gourmand, elegant and offers a small richness as well as a fine grain. It reveals notes of ripe strawberries, crushed blackberry and small notes of chocolate combined with slight hints of caramelization as well as a very discreet hint of Sichuan pepper and tonka bean. The palate is fruity, elegant, well-balanced and offers a beautiful definition, an acidulous frame, a beautiful juiciness, suavity, a good structure, a beautiful precision, freshness as well as a fine minerality almost saline (in the background). On the palate this wine expresses notes of crushed blackberry, fleshy/ripe strawberry and small notes of fleshy/ripe cherry associated with fine touches of cassis, licorice as well as slight hints of violet, tonka bean, spices and a subtle hint of undergrowth. Tannins are elegant. A very fine chews in the background. Good length.
