2016 - Non contractual picture. Beautiful color purple, the nose is fresh, elegant and complex on slightly minty notes and ripe red fruit. The mouth is fleshy tannins charmers. This wine develops power and finesse. Good aging potential but almost immediate drinkability. Domain Château Léoville Barton: Château Léoville Barton was born of the Léoville estate division in 1826, when Hugh Barton, already owner of Château Léoville Irish in Saint-Julien, bought part of the vineyard. Thus a new big name Bordeaux born, alongside the other two parcels from the sale, Leoville Las Cases and Léoville Poyferré. Today, almost two centuries later, the area still belongs to the Barton family, an unusual situation where transactions Bordeaux rife ever since. Became the owner in 1983, Anthony Barton has succeeded to forget the difficult vintages of the Second World War and the period of decline in 1970, signing a spectacular revival, particularly noticeable since 1985. A remarkable 2000 vintage inaugurated the XXI century in style, followed in 2005 simply sublime. Among the many strengths of the area, a high proportion of old vines and the use of traditional wooden vats deliberately retained when most Bordeaux wines get separated for innovation at the time, the stainless steel tank. Raw having no castle or winery built on this land, it is Léoville Barton that take place winemaking and farming.
The estate's wines offer an exuberant nose of black fruit (cherry, black currant), spices, cedar and coffee. In the mouth, they turn out concentrated and racy, marked by powerful tannins but very flexible, resulting in a velvety superb. Several years in the cellar are necessary for the fulfillment of this great wine with outstanding guard prospects.

I enjoyed it with a beef dish. Drinking it with a lover for a romantic dinner is perfect.
It had a deep colour at first sight. Notes of strawberry on the nose. Voluptuous in the mouth.
