Grand Vin Saint-Julien 2006
This “rich and opulent” reminded Wine Advocate’s Neal Martin “of a fine Margaux”. Wonderfully poised and with faultless balance, Neal Martin advised Bordeaux fans to “cellar this for another decade.” Offering oodles of class, this is one to squirrel away into the vault for a rainy day circa 2025 and beyond.
The much-loved Second Growth Saint-Julien Château Léoville Barton shines every year. But 2009 was something special. As ever, this is all about sophistication, it’s a sleek, tall, cravat-wearing gentleman with a monocle, cane and shiny shoes. When Monsieur Barton enters the room, everyone will take note and then gravitate towards him. And later, he’ll enjoy some game, some mature cheese and some fine conversation.
Always popular, if you would like to secure this, be quick as it won’t hang around for long. As respected wine critic Neal Martin notes: “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.”
