About this Item

Saint-Julien, 1982
4 (1 x 4) 750ml
Château 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.

Critics Ratings

‘With massive, huge concentration, excruciating tannin, this earthy, meaty St.-Julien has everything, but it needs to be forgotten for at least 10-15 years. At this tasting, it did not appear to have budged since the last time I had it, and it did not taste terribly different than it did at age five. While it is remarkably concentrated, it is hard to rate it any higher because it may take another 25 years to reach maturity.’ -  Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, 90+/100 (Jun 2009)

‘It has a very elegant, very “classic” bouquet with leafy black autumnal fruit, sandalwood, tobacco and a citric edge. The palate is vibrant and not overly complex with superb tension. This is so fresh and pretty, perhaps cutting away a little too swiftly on the finish, but you are satisfied by then. This is a fine Leoville Barton.’ - Neal Martin, Wine Advocate, 91/100 (Nov 2012)
