Château Léoville-Barton 2e Cru Classé St-Julien Aoc 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.

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.

This is a magnificently solid wine, initially even a bit severe. At this young stage, the tannins dominate, but it’s also full of black fruit notes. Very dense and concentrated, this is a wine that’s even better than the legendary 2005. The structure tells of its extraordinary aging potential: don’t even attempt to drink this for 10 years.

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 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 inky-purple. Knockout aromas of smoky plum, chocolate-coated blackcurrant, balsamic vinegar and aromatic herbs. Suave, sweet and fine-grained, with creamy-rich cassis, smoke and sweet spice flavors given definition by firm acidity. Finishes with... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

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 Barton. Like all the estates wines this will age well but it should be accessible earlier than 2005. Jeff Leve.

70% cabernet sauvignon 22% merlot 8% cabernet franc. Notes of blackberry and violet mix with toasty brioche espresso and just a touch of eucalyptus on a dark brooding nose.Tannins are big and round but nicely balanced with dark fruit and vibrant acidity keeping the wine focused through a long finish. With an overall impression of balance even in youth this will benefit from another 6-8 years in the bottle and then should impress over the next 25-30 years. Alex Shaw.
