A fresh and complex red wine from Saint-Julien

A 2ème Cru Classé en 1855, Château Léoville Barton is a red wine produced from a 50-hectare vineyard in the Saint-Julien appellation. The vines are planted on a terroir composed of gravelly soils on clayey subsoils. The wine is aged in oak barrels, of which 60% are new. The 2009 vintage blends 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22.5% Merlot and 0.5% Cabernet Franc.

At tasting, the Château Léoville Barton 2009 shows a great opulence. The power of the wine is balanced by its edgy side, which makes it fresh and complex. One may observe flavours of sugar, toast, tar and spices.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Medium to deep garnet colored, the 2009 Leoville Barton gives up expressive cherry cordial, warm cassis and blackberry tart scents with nuances of menthol, cigar box and fallen leaves. Medium-bodied and elegantly played with loads of freshness and soft tannins, it has a long, perfumed finish.
