Pure, dark black fruit and compote more suggestive of Napa than Bordeaux. Huge, tannic and powerful. I’d let this rest at least 3-4 more years.

Perfect timing. The 2004 is showing beautifully now. Just the right amount of Brett and big floral notes. Great structure and bright fruit.

Better than the last one I opened a few weeks back.

Nose here has loads of well defined blackcurrant, black cherry, plum, new and rather plush leather and then some red fruit coming through, seems quite youthful. Palate also seems somewhat youthful, tannins are tightly grained, fruit is fresh and firm, still plenty to come from this.

K&L Wines Fete du Bordeaux at One Market restaurant. On the nose: black fruit, mint, cassis. Taste: full body black fruit with minerality and smoke on the finish....wine still has some distance to go!

Think this chateau is underrated. They crank out great wine. 04’ is still a little tight but delicious. Red fruit, little smoke, leather-earthy tones with a hint of cedar. Nice smooth finish.

17.5/20 (93/100) Насыщенный аромат с нотами чернослива, чёрной смородины, фиников, кожи, гвоздики и шоколада. Довольно тельное и кислотное вино. Танины интенсивные, но гладкие по текстуре. Можно пить уже сейчас. #dfwe2018

I’m a sucker for barton. Family liked the pontet canet better but this st julien was delicious. Black currant, leather, mineral - classic Bordeaux. If you want a producer well priced and built to age this is it.
