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.
89-92 Points | International Wine Cellar , April 2012
Opaque purple-ruby. Spicy coffee and cocoa notes complicate plum and blackberry aromas. Fresh and pure on the palate, with enticing blackberry and mineral flavors that could use a bit more flesh and sweetness. Finishes pure and long, with mouthwatering acidity, chewy tannins and a light herbal quality. This very serious Léoville-Barton will make an austere drink if it doesn't develop more fruit and flesh.
