Leoville Barton is probably our most favourite Bordeaux producer! That says alot. We were first smittened by their 82 and 85 vintage....and our love has sustained through the last 20+ years.
Leoville Barton 1995
Pretty hard to find 1995s these days. Still loads of black fruit. Just grab it! Trust us. Drink now till 2030! This is a testament that Leoville Barton wines do age well!
Leoville Barton 2000
Great vintage. We bought alot of this during the EP and after 20 years, it's time to enjoy drinking them now! :) Simply cannot go wrong with vintage 2000!
Leoville Barton 2003:
'A spectacular success, the opaque plum-colored 2003 Leoville Barton is still on the young side of its plateau of maturity. It exhibits a striking bouquet of forest floor and black currants as well as a full-bodied, exuberant, youthful style, an opaque plum/ruby color, a lot of complexity, and striking depth and richness. This is a profound, stunning effort from Anthony Barton and his team. Bravo! It should continue to provide immense pleasure for 20-30 years. Drink 2014-2044' Robert Parker 96pts (tasted 2014)
Leoville Barton 2005:
'The Château Léoville-Barton 2005 has a more multi-dimensional bouquet compared to the Langoa with blackberry, bilberry, a hint of ""Liquorice All Sorts"" and crème de cassis. The palate is medium-bodied with dense ripe tannins, a gentle but insistent grip and superb delineation on the finish that reins the power back in, ensuring that this Barton is linear, classic in style. There is great persistence here - a Saint Julien from the top drawer that will give as much pleasure to you as your kids (once they reach drinking age of course). Drink 2019 - 2050' Wine Advocate 95pts (tasted in 2015)
Leoville Barton 2010:
We love this!
'Aromas of pure blackberries and violets follow through to a full body, with super velvety tannins and a delicious balance of sweet fruit, light vanilla and nuts. Really savory and beautiful. Superb wine. I like this better than 2009. Try in 2018.' James Suckling 97pts
'A splendid showing, much stronger from bottle than it was from barrel, the Leoville Barton is one of the spectacular wines of the vintage. Inky purple to the rim, its huge tannin gives this wine real potential for 30-50 years of longevity. It is a classic, powerful Bordeaux made with no compromise. A superstar of the vintage, the wine has notes of pen ink and creme de cassis, good acidity, sweet, subtle oak, and massive extraction and concentration. I thought it was one of the most backward wines of the vintage two years ago, and nothing has changed in the ensuing upbringing of the wine in cask except that the wine now seems even richer, denser and fuller than I previously thought. The beautiful purity, symmetry, and huge finish of nearly a minute make this one of the all-time great classics from Leoville Barton.' Wine Advocate 96+ pts
