Paired this tonight with Vitello Marsala with Fettuccini--all homemade by me--thank you very much 🤪.
Creamy-stewed red fruit, green olives and tobacco nose notes. Somewhat of an alc burn midway. Medium acidity, medium bodied, medium plus tannins. Obviously young and age worthy!

We’re having the last 2011 Leoville tonight. This is always a wine for celebrating with. A traditional Saint-Julien wine of the finest quality. This 2011 vintage has great purity, concentrated fruit and serious structure. Classic cassis, brambly dark fruit deliciousness and deft use of oak are masterfully woven together into a seamless #grandcruclassé I can’t wait to have a few more glasses while this rain sets in for the weekend 🍷 #saintjulien #leovillebarton #memories — 6 days ago
Beautiful and delicious orange from wine and cheese cask..almost Rose like, reminds.me.of rebel rebels. Pepper and some nice tannin behind some sweetness and acid. Really liked it, Fatima.liked it but didn't love it — 19 days ago
Rich light fruits on nice, awesome balance and bunch of spice on the nose. Length is good with a lot of tannin. — a month ago
A smidge disappointed given I’ve had many 2001 Bordeaux I quite like and separately that SJ is my favorite left bank appellation. Just a bit disjointed, with some drying tannins on the finish - definitely drink up if you have these. Still, can’t argue that this is classic Bordeaux and a great pairing with grilled hanger steak. — 7 days ago
