It also has underlying firm structure density and solid tannins. Bring in the acidity at the end and this is both impressive and ready for long-term aging. R.V.

This stands out above its sibling estate by some distance in this vintage - in fact I would say that the closing of the gap between Léoville and Langoa has been the biggest marker of the past decade for them. This is a...   This stands out above its sibling estate by some distance in this vintage - in fact I would say that the closing of the gap between Léoville and Langoa has been the biggest marker of the past decade for them. This is a gorgeous 2009 - rich, measured and slow-burning, full of rippling tannins and good acidity and freshness. The gorgeous, subtle smoke notes aligns with St-Julien freshness and elegance, with a punch of power. Great stuff.

A super-classic St.-Julien that only has a hint of the opulence of the vintage. The beautiful cassis fruit and elegantly dry tannins push briskly through the long and graceful finish.

The wine is full-bodied, and still youthful, but the tannins are so ripe, with 3-4 hours of air, you can drink it now. Or if you can wait another 5 years, this is going to be so much better. The wine was made from blending 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22.5% Merlot and .05% Cabernet Franc. Read more at:https://www.thewinecellarinsider.com/search-wine-tasting-notes/?szSearch=2009+Leoville

This is powerful Cabernet with gutsy weight but polished feel to the fresh plum warm blackberry sauce bittersweet ganache and roasted apple wood notes. Long and tarry through the finish but still invigorating despite its heft. Will need some time to round fully into form. Best from 2017 through 2035. Tasted twice with consistent notes. -JM

There is a lot of fruit concentration on the nose of the Leoville Barton 2009 with lifted, ebullient blackberry, dark plum and graphite billowing with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe black fruits and a veneer of creamy oak that is nicely integrated into the fabric of the wine. This is forward and generous, but does not fall short on flavour and complexity. Very fine.
