    95-100 points Wine Spectator: "Fantastic aromas of currants, black licorice and berries. Fresh flowers. Light smoke. Big and velvety with loads of fruit. Long. Gorgeous. Sexy. Love it. Seems like another 2003; wait and see." (03/06) 94-96 points Robert Parker: "The inky/blue/purple-colored 2005 Leoville Barton offers up aromas of forest floor, cedar, spice box, black currants, and background oak as well as smoke. Boasting massive concentration, full body, and exceptional purity, but excruciatingly tannic and backward, this cuvee is meant for those with 19th century tastes, but also exhibits the purity and precision of modern winemaking. Patience is demanded with this beauty as it will take many years to approach any level of accessibility/maturity." (04/07) K&L's barrel tasting notes - One of the best wines of the vintage. Monster wine. Went on and on forever. Black color. Tannic. Big, powerful red fruit. Broad and deep in the glass. Put away for a very long time. Super concentrated wine. High on everything-fruit and tannin and acid. Wet stones. Unbelievable concentration. Fabulous. Tasted four times. **1/2+ (Clyde Beffa, K&L Bordeaux buyer) Please note - 2005 Bordeaux futures will arrive between Jan 2008 and July 2008. We will contact you for shipping instructions.

    Color: Deep garnet

    Nose: Red fruit in nose with touch of cherry and black fruit underneath

    Palate: More red and dust, pepper on finish and some blue fruit at end. Great acidity and tannins good, some citrus peel on finish.
