96/100 Wine Spectator
Cellaring : 2025 - 2042
Tasted by James Molesworth in 2022 : "A robust young wine, offering notes of blackberry paste, plum jam and blackcurrant coulis that show energy throughout, with abundant bramble, tar and licorice root accents. There's a mouthwatering echo of apple wood at the very end, with a flash of violet adding a hint of purity. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Best from 2025 to 2042. "JM
- Château Léoville Barton is an internationally renowned red wine produced in the Bordeaux region. It is classified as a Second Growth in the Bordeaux wine classification, which means that it is considered to be one of the best wines in the region.
- Grape variety: Château Léoville Barton is predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon, with a significant proportion of Merlot and a small amount of Cabernet Franc. Cabernet Sauvignon generally adds structure and complexity to the wine, while Merlot adds sweetness and fruitiness.
This wine is renowned for its depth, concentration and elegance. The wine is full-bodied, rich and powerful. It has a fine tannic structure that allows it to age for many years. There are often aromas of blackcurrant, blackberry, black cherry and liquorice. There may also be hints of tobacco, leather and oak, due to the ageing process in oak barrels. The wine has a velvety texture on the palate, with well-integrated tannins that give it a silky mouthfeel. The finish is generally long and complex, with lovely lingering flavours.

Château Léoville Barton is a powerful wine that goes well with rich, flavoursome dishes:
- It goes particularly well with grilled or roasted red meats, such as beef steak or leg of lamb.
- Aged cheeses, especially hard cheeses, can also be good companions for this wine.
- Duck or game dishes, prepared with rich sauces, can be an excellent option.
Serving temperature :
Château Léoville Barton should be served at an ideal serving temperature of around 16 to 18 degrees Celsius (60 to 64 degrees Fahrenheit). We recommend decanting before serving to allow the wine to air out and release all its aromas and flavour.
