Château Leoville Barton

"One cannot admire enough proprietor Anthony Barton and his classic, potentially long-lived wines that are models of power, elegance, and longevity – in short, these wines symbolize what makes Bordeaux so world-renowned!"
- Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

Château Leoville Barton, from the St. Julien appellation, is all about over-delivery. A claret drinkers’ dream come true, they boast value, quality, and consistency. The focus is on the wine drinking not investment. Fair pricing usually does not equate with a second growth status, but they are able to save on overhead by not having their own estate. Stylistically they are earthy, velvety, opulent, and full-bodied with excellent overall balance. Some would even say magical. These wines are the epitome of value. Among the best vintages are 1985, 1989, 1994, 1995, 1996, 2005, 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011.

Tasting Notes

WE94
As so often, Leoville-Barton stands out for its style and elegance. With fresh fruit and acidity allied to generous tannins, it sums up the character of the 2004 vintage. Very classic in Bordeaux terms: not hugely powerful, but delicious.
WA92
This is an impressively endowed vin de garde that should age effortlessly for 20-30 years. How Anthony Barton continues to fashion uncompromisingly primordial Bordeaux that are always among the biggest and densest of all the St.-Juliens is beyond me, but he does it year in and year out. Moreover, when it's time to set the price, he appears to have the consumer foremost in his mind. The 2004 is a classic Leoville-Barton meant for long aging. Concentrated, with loads of smoke, creme de cassis, forest floor, and earthy notes emerge from this impressive, but oh, so backward wine. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030+.
