Something about Chateau Leoville Barton
A true emblem of the Saint-Julien appellation, Château Léoville Barton represents the quintessence of the Médoc region through wines that shine bright with great consistency and class, guaranteed to satisfy even the most demanding Bordeaux lovers.
This 2nd Grand Cru Classé (Second Classified Growth) of 1855 reflects the passion of the Barton family who have devoted themselves fully to this property, making it one of the flagships of the Left Bank and of the Saint-Julien appellation.
In line with the saying that the greatest terroirs overlook water, Château Léoville Barton presides over a 50 hectare vineyard located in the immediate vicinity of the Gironde River. The vines are planted in a soil of gravelly clay. The grape varieties planted in their vineyard reflect the typical Médoc style with mostly Cabernet Sauvignon (74%), complemented by 23% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc.
From its vineyard to the winery, Château Léoville-Barton shows off a tremendous winemaking excellence, a traditional know-how blended with just the right dose of innovative and modern technology, to achieve a contemporary style.
Both the Grand Vin (First Wine) of the property, the namesake Château Léoville Barton, and the Second Wine, La Réserve de Léoville Barton, offer one of the best tasting experiences of the Saint-Julien appellation.
Forever demonstrating a level of refinement required of every Grand Cru, the wines of Château Léoville Barton reveal a signature style in the glass: a subtle blend of elegance and perfectly restrained power. Léoville Barton truly represents the nobility of the Medoc wine region in its purest form.

Leoville Barton-s 2011 is head and shoulders above its sister offering, Langoa Barton. Although not as backward as I expected given the general style that emerges from Anthony Barton-s beloved St.-Julien estate, this wine will need time in the bottle once it is released in several years. An opaque purple color is followed by aromas of damp earth, underbrush, black currants, cedar and hints of vanillin and incense. Medium to full-bodied and moderately tannic with good acidity as well as excellent delineation and purity, it should be forgotten for 4-5 years, and drunk over the following two decades.
A sleek, refined wine with blueberry, mineral and dried-flower character. Medium to full body with firm tannins. Bright and racy. Better in 2018.
A classic Léoville-Barton that deserves to sell well, this is aromatic and bright, with Asian spices, dark plums and some sweet bramble and cassis flavours framed by fresh acidity and grainy, subtly extracted tannins. Fans of "off vintages" from this reliable château would do well to buy a case or two and cellar it. 10+ years.
Finely expressed intensity of fruit and a firmness of structure over natural aromatic ripeness to give it an assured future. Drink 2017-2035.
