Description

There can surely be few other estates in Bordeaux that are as consistently brilliant as Léoville-Barton. This is incredibly classy, with very concentrated, rich, restrained black fruits, and hints of cedar, minerals and cigar box. It is all in absolutely perfect balance with a wonderful freshness and sublime elegance amid lashings of fruit and very fine tannins. Amazing stuff.
