Tasting Note:

This is a big ambitious Leoville Barton - a real vin de garde. We love the style and the classicism - this might have been what the 1986 looked like at a similar stage, although the tannic profile is probably a lot more sophisticated. The sheer power and energy here is mighty impressive. The bouquet is all classy fruit and fine minerals, sexy griotte notes and lavish purple fruits. It doesn't really prepare you for the hugely concentrated palate of classic Cabernet fruit that follows. This is taut, linear, muscular stuff - there's no excess, this is sinewy and powerful. It really is a profound Leoville rippling with elemental Cabernet and classy minerals. Although the tannic profile is monumental, it is detail and refined. This is a powerhouse, classic Barton that will require plenty of patience, but will be so rewarding. Magnificent. 82% Cabernet Sauvignon and 18% Merlot.
