Tasting Notes Leoville Barton 2009

96

Very floral, with fresh mushrooms and currants on the nose. Full body, with powerful tannins, yet polished and refined. Lovely length. Vibrant acidity. Well structured. Try after 2018.

Served blind at the Southwold 2009 tasting. There is a lot of fruit concentration on the nose of the Leoville Barton 2009 with lifted, ebullient blackberry, dark plum and graphite billowing with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe black fruits and a veneer of creamy oak that is nicely integrated into the fabric of the wine. This is forward and generous, but does not fall short on flavour and complexity. Very fine. Tasted January 2013.

Head and shoulders above its stablemate, Langoa Barton, proprietor Anthony Barton's 2009 Leoville Barton is another massive, excruciatingly rich, tannic, potentially long-aged wine. Meant for consumers with old fashioned tastes, it boasts a dense opaque purple color as well as a bouquet of licorice, forest floor, unsmoked cigar tobacco and a hint of earth. The wine reveals tremendous denseness and richness, a broad, savory mouthfeel and elevated tannins in the finish. However, there is a sweetness to the tannins and no trace of bitterness and astringency, always a sign of a top vintage as well as fully mature grapes. Still a monolithic baby, this 2009 should be forgotten for at least a decade, and consumed over the next 30-50 years.
