1995 Chateau Leoville Barton St. Julien France
A high proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon makes this a rich and fruity wine with classed Saint Julien cassis-like flavor.
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.
