2018 Chateau Leoville Barton, 2nd Growth St. Julien (6 x Bottle)

France Bordeaux St. Julien

The 2018 Léoville Barton was picked from 21 September until 6 October and then matured in 60% new oak. It has a ripe and generous bouquet with blackcurrants, blueberry, crushed violets that might cheekily be described as Langoa-plus. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and a fine bead of acidity. This has firm grip, one of the most structured Léoville-Bartons that I have encountered with a slightly lactic finish. Where this succeeds is in the alcohol that is kept under control (14.03%) so that there is no warmth and delineation is upheld throughout. Superb.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate

Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2018 Léoville Barton simply sings of crushed black cherries, blackcurrant cordial and wild blueberries with touches of violets, dark chocolate, allspice and cardamom with a waft of stewed tea. Full-bodied, rich and decadently fruited in the mouth, the generous fruit has a solid structure of firm, ripe, grainy tannins and oodles of freshness, finishing long and layered.
