✔ Icoon aan de top van de appellation Saint-Julien
✔ Een family affair: al 200 jaar in handen van de familie Barton
✔ Consultancy door Eric Boissenot

Het gevierde Léoville-Barton is het trotse bezit van de familie Barton dat ook eigenaar is van Château Langoa-Barton.

De 2020 is een compositie van 85.5% cabernet sauvignon en 14,5% merlot. Opvoeding op eikenhouten vaten waarvan 60% nieuw. Een klassieke jaargang voor Barton waarover Neal Martin van Vinous geweldig enthousiast is: ‘It is one of the best vintages that I have encountered in barrel. Wow!...If you don’t have this in your cellar, then there will be a Léoville Barton–shaped hole to fill.’ 94-96 punten.

The 2020 Léoville Barton reveals a deep purple-black color, springing from the glass with vivacious scents of crushed black cherries, cassis and black raspberries, plus hints of cinnamon toast, wild sage, red roses and sassafras. The medium to full-bodied palate is packed with muscular black fruits, framed by grainy tannins and loads of freshness, finishing long and perfumed.

Packed full of black chocolate shavings, liquorice, cocoa bean, concentrated cassis and bilberry fruits. Good quality, will bed down and age extremely well, with depth and character but also classicism. As with many in this corner of the Médoc peninsula in this vintage, the austerity to the tannins is very much to the fore right now. May be upscored when in bottle.

The 2020 Léoville Barton was picked September 15–16 and matured in 70% new oak. It is one of the best vintages that I have encountered in barrel. Wow! This shoots from the glass with beautifully defined black fruit, mineral-rich aromas, pixelated with laser-like focus. The palate is medium-bodied with chiseled tannins, a perfect line of acidity, layers of vibrant, vivacious black fruit and a very persistent finish that is pure class. If you don’t have this in your cellar, then there will be a Léoville Barton–shaped hole to fill.

A full-bodied red that builds on the palate with lots of blackberry and blueberry character, as well as chocolate. Mineral and graphite undertones. Chewy, yet very integrated. Excellent, as expected.

Deep purple-almost blue-in color, the 2020 Château Léoville Barton offers up an exotic, vibrant, perfumed nose that carries loads of pure cassis fruit interwoven with violets, sappy green herbs, and floral aromatics. Rich, medium to full-bodied, and concentrated, this thick, chewy, powerful Saint-Julien has good acidity, building, firm, yet ripe tannins, and a great finish. My money is on this requiring 15 years to come anywhere close to maturity. It doesn’t get any more classic Barton than this.
