Chateau Leoville-Barton, Saint-Julien 2eme cru classe

Leoville-Barton entirely warrants its reputation as a discrete but perennially classy ‘super-Second’. Despite the absence of an actual chateau (the wines are made at fellow property Langoa-Barton), Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc.
“Not surprisingly, this wine is closed, masculine, but super-rich, with a denser, more complete and full-bodied style than its sibling, Langoa-Barton. Some toasty vanillin is apparent in the blackcurrant aromas intermixed with tobacco leaf, cedar and spice box. The wine is full-bodied and has a boatload of tannin, not unusual for this estate, as well as an impressively pure, long finish. Everything is here, but this wine, made with uncompromising vision, is meant to be cellared for an exceptionally long period of time. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2035.” 91 points
