Reviews for 2011 Leoville-Barton Bordeaux Blend

WE 95
Wine Enthusiast - Wine Enthusiast, February 2014
Great swathes of fruit cross the tannic core in this impressive wine. Hints of wood aging peek out from beneath the sumptuous richness and spice. It is ripe, dense and obviously set for long aging. Drink from 2018.

There are lovely notes of blackberry dark plum and a touch of graphite. It unfurls beautifully if you lend it five minutes. The palate is very well balanced with fine tannins good substance very elegant and refined with a natural slightly earthy finish that is long in the mouth. Superb persistency - this is one of the top Saint Julien wines. Tasted April 2012.

This has some slightly rugged grip, with a prominent charcoal frame. Delivers ample flesh at the core, offering plum cake, currant preserves and smoldering tobacco leaf notes, offset by a tangy hint of anise. Should settle in well enough after modest cellaring. Best from 2016 through 2026. 12,500 cases made. –JM

Palate-staining red and dark fruit flavors show very good depth, with tangy acidity providing lift. Silky tannins add shape and grip to the very pure, long finish, which offers lingering notes of cream soda and violet. Though bigger and deeper than the Langoa Barton, it is not currently displaying that wine's great charm.
