Chateau Leoville Barton St Julien 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"This has a fabulous nose of currants, dried flowers, and tons of dark fruits. Full bodied and chewy, with round tannins and a muscular body. This is big and juicy with lively acidity. Barrel sample. 95+.." JamesSuckling.com 1/11 "This behemoth possesses massive extraction, an opaque purple color, huge density, extreme tannins, and a nearly endless finish. Everything is there, but the highly extracted style and off the chart tannins ensures that no one over the age of forty will ever see this wine hit full maturity. Nevertheless, there is a lot to admire, and it-s good to taste a wine that will not be ready to drink for 30+ years. No compromise!...93-95+"WA 04/10

Perfumed. Seductive. Dense and powerful. Very intense and ambitious indeed. Well-managed tannins. Glossy. Very dry at the moment. 18/20 Jancis Robinson. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Leoville-Barton 1500ml

A major success of the vintage. The wine exhibits extreme richness of the fruit, with all its sweet blackberry flavors. It also has underlying firm structure, density and solid tannins. Bring in the acidity at the end, and this is both impressive and ready for long-term aging.
