Once part of the Leoville estates (including Leoville Poyferre and Leoville Las Cases), Château Leoville Barton is the smallest portion of the three and has been owned by the Barton family since 1826. The wines are known for offering great quality at reasonable prices, they are elegant and structured and classed amongst the best of St Julien.
Intense aromas of blackcurrant and blueberry with notes of tobacco and leather. Full bodied with firm tannins and good length.
Dense ruby/purple, with cassis licorice and forest floors notes in the aromatics, Léoville-Barton’s 2012 is a relatively big, rich, masculine style of wine. This full-bodied wine needs 5-8 years of cellaring and should evolve easily for 25-30 years. Drink: 2023 - 2053- 92 pts Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
