La Réserve de Léoville Barton 2016
94 points, “Coal smoke and dark, stony minerals create a dramatic, moody aura here, around spicy red berries and black cherries. The palate has great energy and verve with cocoa-dusted, wild berries and an immaculate, fresh and sleek finish.” – James Suckling
La Réserve de Léoville Barton is the second wine of the much-loved and always reliable Second Growth from Saint-Julien. As wine critic Neal Martin says: “year-in, year-out [Château Léoville Barton] produces delicious, well-crafted, high-quality Saint-Julien that its legions of devoted fans – including myself – finish down to the very last drop.” And this is no exception; brimming with intense blackberry, strawberry, blackcurrants and sandalwood.
2016 was a fabulous vintage in Bordeaux. Don’t just take our word for it, the experts at Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate have rated it as “extraordinary” in most appellations and this is what the other critics have to say:
