Notes of liquorice, bramble fruit and compote fruit are intertwined with violets and cherry blossom. There is serious concentration here with wave after wave of svelte cassis and sweet berry fruit on the palate. Despite the enormous power and structure that this possesses, there is also a haunting quality. This is by no means a monolith; there is extraordinary complexity, beautifully defined tannins, freshness, vibrancy, as well as a peacock's tail of aromas and flavours. Wonderful!

Château Léoville Barton is the smallest portion of the great Léoville estate and has been owned by the Barton family since 1826. There is no château and the wine is made at Langoa Barton.
Léoville Barton's 48 hectares of vineyards are located in the east of the St-Julien wine appellation and lie on gravelly-clay soils. They are planted with Cabernet Sauvignon 72%, Merlot 20%, Cabernet Franc 8%. The wine is matured in oak barriques (50% new) for 18 months.
Since Anthony Barton took over the reins from his Uncle Ronald in the mid-80s, quality has soared at Léoville Barton and the wine has gone from being a solid mid-league performing 2ème Cru Classé to one of the most exciting and scintillating wines in St. Julien.
Léoville Barton can be tannic and austere in youth but with time develops the classic cedary character that is the hallmark of St. Julien, along with intensely pure blackcurrant and cassis fruit notes. Léoville Barton's wines are made for extended cellaring and tend to show at their best with 10-15 years of bottle ageing.
