    Aromas of currants and berries with flowers and spices. Some balsamic vinegar, too. Medium to full body, firm and compacted tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Solid young wine. Excellent second wine of Leoville Barton. Try in 2021.

    Tasted blind. Some polish, charm and rigour too. Just what I want of a St-Julien! Very vibrant. Dry finish but I think it will all come right as there is just so much going on there. Wonderfully long. Intense.

    The 2014 Leoville Barton is one of the must-buys of the vintage. Now in bottle, it has a very pure bouquet that gains intensity in the glass, laden with blackberry and raspberry coulis scents, cold wet stone, a wonderful mineralite that becomes more conspicuous with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with tensile tannin, a fine line of acidity that lends this precision and nervosite. There is class and sophistication in situ, not a powerful Leoville Barton, but beautifully poised. This is just a brilliant forerunner to the 2015 and it should represent great value.

    This has a solid core of cassis, blueberry confiture and plum sauce flavors, wrapped with warm ganache and licorice snap notes, kept honest by graphite rivets along the finish. This has lots of muscle, but stays lean and long. Best from 2020 through 2035. 11,667 cases made.

    The 2014 Leoville Barton has a crisp, poised bouquet with graphite tinged black fruit, hints of crushed flower and clove, nicely define and gaining definition with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, beautifully judged acidity, sophisticated and poised, fanning out with confidence towards the fresh, energetic finish. This is a succinct and beautifully crafted Saint Julien with many years of drinking enjoyment to give. Tasted blind at the annual Southwold tasting. - Neal Martin

  • Leoville-Barton is one of the five St. Julien Second Growth properties designated in the 1855 classification. It is often referred to as a "super-second", though, because its wines are at a quality level approaching that of a First Growth. The chateau is not only considered one of the top wines in St. Julien, but also one of the best values. Leoville-Barton wines have a higher percentage of Cabernet-Sauvignon than other proprietors' blends, a typical blend consisting of 70% Cabernet, 20% Merlot, and 10% Cabernet Franc. Leoville-Barton produces a second label called La Reserve de Leoville-Barton. The Barton family owns both Chateau Langoa-Barton and Chateau Leoville-Barton, having acquired them in the 1820s.
