2011 Château Léoville-Barton, Cru Classé St-Julien
Anthony Barton crafted one of the wines of the vintage this year. Dark and very brooding, with some very pure Cabernet fruit showing through, the nose heralds well the fantastic palate of rich and full-bodied blackberries, graphite and spices. The habitual firm tannic structure is extremely well handled, completing a great effort and creating, once again, an absolutely quintessential claret.
