97 points Wine Spectator: "Highly Recommended * This is the biggest, most powerful ever from Léoville Barton. Amazingly rich and silky. Lots of chocolate and blackberry aromas, with hints of raspberries. Full-bodied, with silky and round tannins. Great concentration. Long, long finish. Best after 2012."
95 points Robert Parker: "I found this to be one of the more backward wines of the 2000 vintage and gave it a window of maturity of 2015-2040 when I reviewed it in 2003. In my two recent tastings of it, I changed that window to 2018-2050, which probably says more than the following tasting note could say. This is a behemoth - dense, highly extracted, very tannic, broodingly backward, with a dense purple color and very little evolution since it was bottled 8 years ago. Wonderfully sweet cedar and fruitcake notes are intermixed with hints of creme de cassis, licorice, and earthy forest floor."
Kevin Judd was the man behind Cloudy Bay for 25 years and set up his own company in 2008. This is simply better than anything coming from his old employer...
A light style of gin - hints of juniper and herbs which make a lovely, light, refreshing alternative to bigger juniper focused London Dry Gins.
