LEOVILLE BARTON

Version Française Assemblage : 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc

Le Figaro Vin, 2010 : 16/20

Attaque dense, milieu de bouche assez ferme puis tannique, beaucoup d'élégance et de longueur, très fin.

Le Guide Hachette Des Vins 2012

S’il n’entend pas rivaliser avec certains millésimes antérieurs – dont le 2005, magnifique coup de cœur –, ce vin offre une belle illustration des grands bordeaux par son élégance. Son bouquet naissant laisse deviner une grande complexité, partagé entre notes florales et épicées. Après une attaque tout en souplesse, le palais se montre à la fois suave, généreux et puissant, adossé à une structure solidement arrimée. Une bouteille parfaitement armée pour affronter un séjour en cave de cinq à dix ans.


English Version Blend : 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc

Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (194), May 2011: 92/100

Typically extracted and powerful (which is atypical in a vintage such as 2008), this offering may lack charm, but it is "locked and loaded" with plenty of background oak, huge black cherry and black currant fruit, medium to full body and a boatload of tannin. Forget it for 8-10 years and drink it over the following three decades.

James Suckling, WineSpectator.com, April 2009: 90-93/100

Roses, blackberries, currants and wet earth. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and very pretty fruit. Long and juicy. A delicious wine, very balanced.

Jancis Robinson MW, JancisRobinson.com, April 2009: 16,5/20

Purplish with a lightish rim. Quite integrated nose. Well balanced. Some savour though no great intensity. Very fine tannins and good balance even if not a very firm imprint of personality. Marked tannins on the finish without a great weight of exciting fruit.

Château Léoville Barton-2ème Grand Cru Classé en 1855-Appellation Saint-Julien
Château Léoville Barton

Château Leoville Barton is the third (and smallest) element of the famous trio of Saint Julien properties that 200 years ago formed one estate (Château Leoville) and has been the property of the illustrious Barton family since 1836. The family has been involved in the wine trade since 1723 when Irishman, Hugh Barton, bought part of the Léoville vineyards, before joining forces with Daniel Guestier in 1725 to create the famous Barton & Guestier negociant. Ronald Barton inherited the property in 1927 and passed it on to his nephew, Anthony, in 1983.

Thanks to Anthony Barton’s far-sighted vision, Château Leoville Barton, has been transformed to one of the best value wines amoung the best of Saint Julien.

Chateau Léoville Barton also produce a 3rd Classified Growth, Langoa Barton, which is vinified and matured in exactly the same way and the differences are attributed to the difference of soil and exposure of their respective vineyard blocks. For years, Langoa Barton was considered as slightly lighter and more forward than Léoville, however, in the last decade it has become noticeably deeper in colour and richer and more concentrated on the palate. Today, Langoa Barton is often regarded as the equal of Léoville.
