Chateau Leoville Barton 2019

Product description
99 Points - Wine Enthusiast

An outstanding, rich, structured wine, this has all the hallmarks of one of the stars of this vintage. Packed with rounded tannins and rich black fruits, the wine is impressively concentrated in layers of blackberry flavours and lifted acidity. Expect this wine to age for many years.

97 Points - Jeb Dunnuck

The flagship 2019 Château Léoville Barton is brilliant, showing the style of the estate and the vintage beautifully. It's never the biggest or richest wine, yet it has a classic, vibrant, structured style that ages beautifully. Pure cassis, black currants, scorched earth, new leather, and graphite are just some of its nuances, and it's medium to full-bodied, with a lively spine of acidity, beautiful overall balance, and an excellent finish. In this textbook, Leoville Barton demands a decade of bottle age and will keep for 30-40 years. Best after 2032.

Like its stablemate Langoa Barton, the 2019 Léoville Barton is a timeless classic for patient connoisseurs. Offering up aromas of blackcurrants, plums, pencil shavings and licorice, it's full-bodied, deep and concentrated, its deep core of fruit framed by a chassis of rich, powdery tannin that makes itself felt on the youthfully firm finish. While it's built for the long haul, its structural seamlessness and mid-palate plenitude mark it out as one of the finest wines from this chateau in recent times. Could it be a more concentrated modern-day version of Anthony Barton's brilliant 1985?
