Chateau Leoville-Barton St. Julien 2002 Wine Review (NW)
Opens with a beautiful nose of berries and tobacco
Full bodied on the palate
Rich and intense finish of black currant, spices, and tobacco with good length
Excellent wine, and one of my favorite reds from Bordeaux! It's fully integrated and harmonious with a style that's pure Bordeaux classic. The release price was around $50 but expect to pay $100 now if you see it available.
We paired it with grilled, sliced sirloin over a bed a greens. Fabulous, of course! Raise a glass!
