Château Léoville Barton, 2ème Cru Classé, St Julien, 2014

Tasting Note:

Produced from 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc, the 2014 Leoville Barton is brooding, masculine offering. There is impressive substance, with plenty of dark, cool, mineral fruit on the nose. The mid-palate is quite savoury and earthy with lots of substance. On the evidence of this tasting, there is a tannic spine which dominates. There is not an abundance of fruit on the finish, which is a slight concern, but it should reward cellaring. Harvested between the 25th of September and the 8th of October. Aged in 60% new oak barrels. 13.5% alcohol. * It is worth noting that we tasted at the St Julien UGC at the end of a very long day. We felt that the samples were not necessarily representative. Our notes are an honest account of what we tasted, however, we are sure that the wines are much better than our notes suggest.
