Ch. Léoville Barton (0.75 L)
NM: Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux 2010 tasting. The L¿ªoville-Barton 2010 has a very impressive, very showy bouquet with mineral-driven black fruit mixed with hints of liquorice and cigar box that unfolds with every passing moment in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with a fleshy ripe but structured opening. The acidity is very well judged with a fine line of acidity, real depth and flavour here with a long, light peppery finish. Excellent – an accomplished Saint-Julien from Anthony Barton and his team. Tasted January 2014.
