Me yesterday at Léoville Barton while tasting the 2005 with owner Anthony Barton:
“Anthony. What have you changed? This 2005 is very impressive. It reminds me of the 2003,” I said.
“I have done nothing different,” he said, looking rather perplexed. “I am just making my wines. We don’t do anything special. We don’t even do green harvesting.”
If it ain't broken, don't fix it, mon ami—even if everyone else claims to be green harvesting during the summer.
I also tasted the Léoville Barton 2003 again at the château, and it was as impressive as ever…still 98 points.
