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 | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2006
($99-$150) Good medium ruby. Explosive nose of black raspberry, coffee and leather. Hugely rich, dense and sweet, with deep flavors of currant, plum and chocolate complicated by underlying minerality. Wonderfully dense and full on the back end, with broad tannins and palate-staining length. Today, the 2005 comes off as dry by comparison. A standout of the vintage, and likely to be long-lived in the context of the year.
