Leoville Barton - Château Leoville Barton
  • The elegant, spice box, cedary, oaky, red and black currant-scented and flavored 1997 Leoville Barton reveals surprising softness, medium body, low acidity, and ripe tannin. Drink it over the next decade. I would not be surprised to see it improve in the bottle, and possibly merit a higher score.

  • Tasted twice. Soft rounded berry nose. Quite pretty and Margaux in style. Fine sweet tannins. Notes of cherry, toffee and strawberry. Light but elegant with good acidity. Very pretty wine. Good medium-term drinking claret. Tasted April 2002.
