Default TN Leoville-Barton 1997

Having recovered from the flu decided last night to have our New Years Eve
claret.

Leoville Barton 1997.
A bright medium bodied claret.
Classic tight vegetal leather nose, soft entry with quaffing tannins, berry
fruit spice and quite long.

A classic lunchtime claret, at 12.5% and a very easy drink. Most pleasant.
A good reflection on the year.

JT

This is supposed to be a "drink-up now" vintage. I take it that this was
still in good form.
