Wine Enthusiast, May 2012
The wine is immensely dark powered by black plum and a ripe complex structure. Already the elements are molding into place. Expect great things of this wine. - R.V.

The Leoville Barton has a very elegant bouquet that takes time to unfurl. 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... The Leoville Barton has a very elegant bouquet that takes time to unfurl. 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.

Focused blackberry currant and cherry sauce flavors show notes of sweet tobacco and nicely roasted spice on the finish with integrated grip.-J.M.

A sleek, refined wine with blueberry, mineral and dried-flower character. Medium to full body with firm tannins. Bright and racy. Better in 2018.

80% cabernet sauvignon 15% merlot 5% cabernet franc. 47 hectares of vineyards lie close to the Gironde sandwiched between the water and Chateau Talbot with gravelly soils over deep clay.

Notes of cassis and marion berry mix with more subtle aromas of clove eucalyptus saffron and a hint of tobacco. A dark powerful wine with broad prominent tannins that carry the dark fruit through a long dry finish. Ample acidity provides lift to the wine and should make for a long-lived 2011 from this estate. Give it 5-8 years to come into balance and enjoy through 2030.
