Wine tasting note: 1989 Leoville Barton Bordeaux

1989 Leoville Barton Bordeaux

8th Dec 1997 GBP35 Bordeaux Table Red

Dark, opaque ruby/red fading gradually to a teak coloured rim.
Rich and complex on the nose with great depth and aromas of spice, vegetal cassis and old oak.
Fully flavoured, medium to full bodied. An elegant but power-packed wine with flavours of tobacco, cedar, coffee, spicy old oak and undertones of mushrooms, a velvety texture, superb concentration and a long, balanced finish.
Starting to drink well but will quite happily last another 10 or more years
