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. (Robert Parker Score 90-92)
The Grand Vin is a blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc picked between 3 and 15 October at 32hl/ha. It is more introspective than the Langoa at this early stage, but perhaps more complex with subtle tertiary and pencil lead scents infusing the black fruit profile. The palate is superbly balanced with fine tannins, delineated black and red fruit infused with graphite borrowed north from Pauillac. It exudes focus and precision and should be one of the finest Saint Julien 2012s
