Château Léoville Barton 2011
Château Léoville Barton is the Léoville connoisseurs, the one we speak less but for some is by far the best.
Much more accessible than its neighbors is a superb wine from Pauillac. The 2011 vintage develops beautiful notes of black fruits, the mouth is round, tannins a little tense but delicate.
The advice of 12bouteilles: The 2011 vintage of Château Léoville Barton is almost ready to drink (2016), 2 years in cellars and you will love to associate it with a red meat or a piece of Duck.
About the Château:
With this Second Classified Growth of Saint Julien, we are in the quintessence of the Saint Julien appellation. Mr. Anthony Barton worked tirelessly to restore a name and a wine that rested somewhat on their laurels. You will find 3 grape varieties in this bottle: a majority of Cabernet Sauvignon then Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The property consists of old vines over 40 years old that give rise to rich and concentrated grapes.
The vinification is placed under the sign of the tradition and the modernity with a parcel processing and a regulation of the temperatures in wooden vats. The farms are made in oak barrels with more than half of new wood.
