Ch. Léoville Barton (0.75 L)
NM: Tasted at the 1999 horizontal at Bordeaux Index. The L¿ªoville-Barton í»99 has a well-defined nose, more restrained and extrovert than the Langoa, with notes of blackberry, wild hedgerow/woodland, Chinese tea and a dash of white pepper. Very good definition. The palate is medium-bodied, sturdy tannins, a little pepper again on the entry with very good structure on the mid-palate. Quite foursquare and í correctí€ with an edgy, off-dry, very í Saint-Juliení€ finish. Very fine ¿C very…English! Drink now-2020. Tasted June 2009.
