Great Bordeaux, rich, fruits and sugards, complex, a hint of acidity and vegetables

Really enjoyed this wine! It enjoyed several hours of decanting, and revealed its lovely violet nose. Definitely a pleasure to sniff! Very refined wine - nice blackberry on the palate with a good minerality, but the tannins don't let you down either.

In 1826, Hugh Barton, already proprietor of Château Langoa, purchased part of the big Léoville estate. His part then became known as Léoville Barton. Six generations of Bartons have since followed, and continued to preserve the quality of the wine, classified a 2nd growth in 1855. Ronald Barton inherited the property in 1927. He in turn donated it to his nephew Anthony in 1983. Today the vineyards are jointly owned by Anthony Barton, his daughter Lilian Barton-Sartorius and her children Melanie and Damien, thus making eight generations of Barton family at Léoville Barton. Traditional methods of wine making are maintened to produce a typical Saint-Julien of elegance and distinction

Full ruby. Bright, pungent aromas of cassis, kirsch and bitter chocolate. Dense, sweet and sappy in the mouth, with a strong mineral character. Finishes very firm and long, with ripe, mouthcoating tannins. Classic claret in the making, austere in the... Stephen Tanzer's IWC.

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.
