Tasting Notes

Dense black cherry notes on the nose with mint and earthiness, there is always something reassuringly serious about Léoville-Barton. On the palate, there is swagger and style alongside the muscle, the tannic frame showing its form against the rich, ripe fruit. As it is worked on the palate, it gets better and better, opening up and offering a glimpse of what is to come but through restraint rather than flashiness. Effortless class once again from Anthony Barton. Drink 2019-2030+. 77CS:22M:1CF. 17.5

Reviews & Scores

Decanter: Dense purple red, finely concentrated blackcurrant Cabernet nose with many layers of complexity, shows freshness above the controlled intensity of pure vineyard fruit, still shut in but a very great expression to come. Drink 2017-40. 19
