Leoville Barton
St Julien, 1996
6 (1 x 6) 750ml
Chateau Léoville Barton is the smallest portion of the great Léoville estate and has been owned by the Barton family since 1826. Classified as a 2nd Grand Cru Classé in 1855 and lies within the iconic terroir of Saint Julien in the Médoc. The Barton family's passion for wine is reflected in the elegance and consistency of each vintage, a traditional reflection of fine Bordeaux.

The 1996 Leoville Barton appears more youthful than the 1996 Langoa Barton in the glass with a healthy deep garnet core. The aromatics unfurl gracefully in the glass revealing briary, wild hedgerow, black truffle and sandalwood scents -- firmly in secondary aroma stage but with appreciable presence and intensity. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannin that form its firm and classic structure, spice, white pepper and cloves infusing the slightly animally red berry fruit. This is an adorable Léoville Barton that is occupying a very "happy" place at the moment -- superb precision, old school claret at its best. - Neal Martin eRobertParker.com 93/100 (2016)
