2017 Château Léoville-Barton, Cru Classé St-Julien

This is a very good Léoville-Barton. There's lovely tension and depth, with fine tannins, pure fruit and floral high notes. The drive is impressive, and the texture too.

TASTING NOTES

This is a really excellent Leoville-Barton with wonderful cabernet sauvignon character of blackberries, blackcurrants and flowers. Full body, firm and lightly chewy tannins and a long and beautiful finish. This has tension and brightness.
