Do you already know the best wine in the world 2019? Now you have the opportunity to taste the French red wine Château Léoville Barton 2016. It was awarded 97 points by Wine Spectator magazine and is available from Uvinum at a unique price.

Château Léoville Barton, is indeed an old acquaintance of the most demanding international critics. Its 300-year history and ten generations of family tradition have made it one of only three Bordeaux families to retain their property even after the official classification of Bordeaux wines in 1855. **The wine is therefore a symbolic representation of the region, one of the reasons why Wine Spectator chose it as the best wine of the year.

Produced in the famous Bordeaux wine region, this delicious red wine is made from Cabernet Sauvignon (86%) and Merlot (14%) grapes harvested by hand and fermented in thermoregulated wooden tanks. It is a wine with a deep ruby red colour that gives us a powerful and fruity taste on the palate with a long finish.
