Château Léoville Barton, 2ème Cru Classé, St Julien, 2015

Tasting Note:

By complete contrast to Langoa, Leoville Barton is a monumental wine with real gravitas. Produced from 86% Cabernet and the balance Merlot, this is a reserved, reticent wine that slowly unfurls to reveal a glorious bouquet of damson liqueur, graphite, cloves, spice, fine herbs, tobacco and flowers. There is considerable mid palate weight here although there is no excess; it is all pure, taut dark fruit which builds and builds offering layers of nuanced black and red berry fruit and minerals. Although understated this is a big wine and will reward considerable cellaring; the stunning fruit coated tannins hint to a long future. Impressive stuff!
