2012 Château Léoville-Barton, Cru Classé St-Julien

Léoville-Barton is a truly classic claret and a favourite of ours in most vintages. In this vintage, it has excelled, relishing conditions that have allowed crunchy, dark berry fruit expression to sing. This is quite a serious and masculine Léoville, showing very dense concentrated dark cassis fruit and structural tannins, yet with a delicious freshness that gives this wine a sense of not having been overworked. Pure, expressive, powerful and mineral, this is a vintage success-story as far as we're concerned.
