WOW. As I type this I am sipping on Friday's email feature, a second growth, 95-point Bordeaux from Saint-Julien. My palate is swooning over its opulent fruit, compelling secondary characters and supple tannins. This wine is just beguiling; it's the kind of wine that you will be pondering days after you have consumed it. And the price? It just makes the wine more irresistible! Today's Buy the Pair, the 2011 Château Léoville Barton Saint-Julien, is absolutely the best purchase you will make all day!

The Barton family has owned this estate for over 300 years; the vines are lovingly tended by current owner and winemaker Lilian Barton-Sartorius. Under the tutelage of her father, the legendary Anthony Barton, she learned how to coax her grapes into nuanced expressions of the land from which they are borne. Today's wine is a Bordeaux lover's dream that is loaded with blackberry and cassis on the nose and palate, with tobacco, pencil shavings and flint beautifully woven in with the fruit. Check out the press on this magnificent wine:

95 points, Wine Enthusiast
"Great swathes of fruit cross the tannic core in this impressive wine. Hints of wood aging peek out from beneath the sumptuous richness and spice. It is ripe, dense and obviously set for long aging. Drink from 2018." (February 1, 2014)

92 points, Wine Spectator
"This has some slightly rugged grip, with a prominent charcoal frame. Delivers ample flesh at the core, offering plum cake, currant preserves and smoldering tobacco leaf notes, offset by a tangy hint of anise. Should settle in well enough after modest cellaring. Best from 2016 through 2026." (March 31, 2014)

92 points, James Suckling
"A sleek, refined wine with blueberry, mineral and dried-flower character. Medium to full body with firm tannins. Bright and racy. Better in 2018." (February 19, 2014)

91 points, Vinous / Antonio Galloni
"Bright, deep red-ruby. Sexy aromas of raspberry preserves, cola, incense and violet. Palate-staining red and dark fruit flavors show very good depth, with tangy acidity providing lift. Silky tannins add shape and grip to the very pure, long finish, which offers lingering notes of cream soda and violet." (July 2014)
