CHATEAU LÉOVILLE BARTON, 2001

SAINT-JULIEN

“approachable for a young Leoville-Barton, it exhibits a saturated plum/purple color along with classic Bordelais aromas of damp earth, creme de cassis, smoke, vanillin, and tobacco. Medium to full-bodied and rich, with high but well-integrated tannin, and a long, 40+ second finish, it should turn out to be a brilliant effort, and one of the stars of the Medoc.” - Robert Parker 92/100

Histoire et anecdotes

In the 19th century, the Leoville estate, in Saint-Julien appellation (Medoc), was one of the largest crus. It was divided in three estates afterwards: Château Léoville Las Cases, Château Léoville Barton, Château Léoville Poyferré. Hugh Barton from Ireland bought a part of the Léoville estate in 1826, which confirmed the Château Léoville Barton’s creation (still the Barton family’s estate). Its wines’ finesse led it to be classified as Second Grand Cru in the 1855 classification.
