2012 Chateau Leoville Barton Saint-Julien Bordeaux
Second Growth. Deuxieme Grand Cru Classe in 1855
Tasting notes: The Leoville Barton has a very elegant bouquet that takes time to unfurl. There are lovely notes of blackberry, dark plum and a touch of graphite. It unfurls beautifully if you lend it five minutes. The palate is very well balanced with fine tannins, good substance, very elegant and refined with a natural, slightly earthy finish that is long in the mouth. Superb persistency – this is one of the top Saint Julien wines.
