The voluptuous silhouette of this wine proves it is the fruit of a sun-blessed vintage, yet with none of the excesses associated with this. The power is certainly present but not domineering thanks to the lively freshness and complexity; then the magic operates, the palate is ablaze with a myriad of sweet, toasty, tarry and spicy flavours.

“The 2011 Leoville Barton has an endearing nose with well-defined red berry fruit, cedar, pencil box and light sous-bois aromas taht unfold with aeration…supple tannins, fine depth and precision. This is a beautiful 2011 that should age with style. Tasted blind at the annual 10-year-on tasting.”
