The 1988 reveals layer upon layer of honeyed pineapple-and orange-scented and -flavored fruit vibrant acidity high levels of botrytis and a fabulously long yet well-focused finish. It is a great wine. Anticipated maturity: 1998-2015. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Opulent and beautiful.-'88/'98 Bordeaux blind retrospective (2008). Drink now. 16,000 cases made.... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1988 Leoville-Barton 750ml


Winemaker's Notes:

The soil of St Julien is ideal for vines, due to its geographic situation and its climate; every element is present to produce wines of exceptional quality and elegance. Châteaux Langoa and Léoville barton have the great privilege of being in the very heart of this appellation.
