91 points " This is an outstanding wine, one of the best of the 1994 vintage. 91 points Robert Parker: "Both the 1994 and 1995 Leoville-Barton were tasted on three separate occasions with identical score ranges. Obviously, Leoville-Barton produced one of the top wines in each vintage. Given the modest pricing policy of proprietor Anthony Barton, these are wines to buy. The 1994 continues to be a classic Leoville-Barton that will repay 20-25 years of cellaring, although it will be drinkable in 5-6 years. The wine possesses an impressively dense, opaque ruby/purple color, as well as a strikingly intense nose of cedar, vanilla, ripe blackcurrants, and spice. Full-bodied, structured, powerful, and muscular, this is the consummate textbook example of a top-notch St.-Julien that is meant for long-term cellaring, yet has enough appeal and sweetness of fruit to be drunk at an earlier age. This beautiful wine is close in quality to the 1990." 90 points and a Spectator Selection designation from the Wine Spectator: "A mouthful for the vintage, with its lovely berry, chocolate and tobacco aromas and flavors, medium to full body and chewy tannins. Fresh finish. Better in 1999." "
