About Chateau Leoville Barton
Chateau Leoville-Barton bears the name of one of the most prominent families in the Bordeaux wine trade. Don't be fooled by their Irish roots, the Bartons know wine, and have stamped their name all over the Medoc.
93(+?) Points | International Wine Cellar , July/August 2002
($30-$75) Saturated medium ruby. Very black aromas of cassis, licorice and violet, plus a whiff of game. Dense, thick and youthful, with a compelling layered texture and major palate impact. But doesn't have quite the clarity or class of the '85 tasted alongside it. Very long, palate-staining finish features big but thoroughly ripe tannins. May ultimately merit a higher score. Drink 2008 through 2025.
