Château Langoa Barton St. Julien Prearrival 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Der Wein ist von dichtem, dunklen Rotbraun und lässt schon bei der ersten Kontaktaufnahme ein äusserst komplexes Bouquet erkennen. Der Geschmack geht von einer vollen, fleischigen, seidigen Ansprache zu einem tanninreichen, aber köstlich saftigem und sehr langen Abgang über. Ein grosser Klassiker mit schöner Terroirnote.

Dark and winey, with a terrific core of plum and macerated black currant fruit woven with a note of black cherry reduction. Tarry but polished. Grippy but velvety. And plenty long. -J.M. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Leoville-Barton 750ml

Deep ruby with purple accents, cassis, earth and spice aromas open to a big mouthful of juicy, chewy, tannic, cabernet sauvignon. While tannic and broad shouldered, the tannins are soft and round. This is one of my favorite vintages of Leoville Barto... Jeff Leve. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Leoville-Barton 750ml

A big, solid, wood powered wine. The power is all there, new wood offering an immense structure, while the acidity gives the necessary freshness. A solid wine, very concentrated, with an immensely long future. Wine Enthusiast. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Leoville-Barton 3000ml

A Perfect Wine!! 100 points for this Second Growth Bordeaux. Classified in 1855, this Chateau has been run by seven generations of the Barton family. In 1983, Anthony Barton, the present owner, was given the property by his uncle Ronald Barton. Anthony Barton's daughter Lilian Barton Sartorius now helps her father in managing the estate. Together, they maintain the traditional methods but produce wine that has skyrocketed the stature of this 2nd Growth and once again in 2010 this wine has over achieved in a big way. Wine Enthusiast Magazine said “This magnificent, solid wine is initially severe, with its tannins dominating, yet it already reveals a full array of black fruits. Very dense and concentrated, this is a wine that's even better than the chateau's legendary 2005. The structure tells of its extraordinary aging potential: Don't even attempt to drink this for the next 10 years.” VERY LIMITED!!!!

A splendid showing, much stronger from bottle than it was from barrel, the Leoville Barton is one of the spectacular wines of the vintage. Inky purple to the rim, its huge tannin gives this wine real potential for 30–50 years of longevity. It is a classic, powerful Bordeaux made with no compromise. A superstar of the vintage, the wine has notes of pen ink and creme de cassis, good acidity, sweet, subtle oak, and massive extraction and concentration. I thought it was one of the most backward wines of the vintage two years ago, and nothing has changed in the ensuing upbringing of the wine in cask except that the wine now seems even richer, denser and fuller than I previously thought. The beautiful purity, symmetry, and huge finish of nearly a minute make this one of the all-time great classics from Leoville Barton. Anticipated maturity: 2028–2065+.

Deep ruby. Very ripe powerful aromas of blackberry cassis licorice and bitter chocolate. Sweet dense ripe and deep with outstanding purity and intensity to its plush black fruit and spice flavors. This has the sweetness of a great Napa Valley cabernet along with buns of steel. Finishes with penetrating fruit and outstanding verve and persistence. For all its creamy richness this should be extremely long-lived. 94+ Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Takes a modern approach, with dark mocha- and espresso-infused toast leading the way, featuring an extra ganache kicker before dark currant preserves and roasted plum fruit strides in. Dense and extracted through the polished finish, this features a charcoal spine that gives rise to extra blueberry and pastis notes. Should cruise in the cellar. Best from 2018 through 2038.
