    Despite the 2007's sweet core, this is one powerful wine. It is tight and textured with dark notesof black cherry and fresh tobacco and fine, chewy tannins. Masculine and brooding, it is not the most supple and charming at this stage, but we cannot fault its concentration and presence. One to watch. Drink 2014-2023

  • Neal Martin, June 2017, Score: 92

    Tasted at BI Wine Spirits' 10-Years-On tasting, the 2007 Leoville-Barton is more vigorous and fruit-driven than the Langoa, with gorgeous dark berry fruit, wilted rose petals and orange blossom scents that really blossom in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with a sensual, quite rounded opening that belies the structure of this Leoville Barton, armed with black pepper and cedar towards the long finish. This is a Saint Julien that has always threatened to come good and at ten years of age, and it is beginning to take flight. A couple of cases of this in your cellar and you cannot go wrong. Tasted February 2017. 92/100. Drink 2017 - 2032

  • Robert Parker, April 2010, Score: 89+

    This muscular, highly-extracted, structured 2007 reveals a boatload of tannin (unusual for this vintage). The wine's dark ruby/purple color is followed by aromas of cassis, new saddle leather,and forest floor offered in a structured, backward, almost unapproachable format. Give it 2-3 years of cellaring, and if the tannins resolve themselves, it will merit a higher score. It should last for 12-20 years. Drink: 2012 - 2032

  • Jancis Robinson, April 2008, Score: 16.5

    Rich and ripe with soft black cherry fruit but not much real concentration on the mid palate. Very drying finish. Quite firm but sandpaper dominates. Drink 2012-16.

Château Léoville Barton

One of the great names in classically styled claret, Léoville Barton has been owned by the same family throughout its entire existence - an unheard of rarity in Bordeaux. Their roots can be traced back to 1826, when Hugh Barton bought 50 hectares of vines in the heart of St Julien and subsequently Château Leoville Barton was made a 2ème Cru Classe in the 1855 classification.

One of the great names in classically styled claret, Léoville Barton has been owned by the same family throughout its entire existence - an unheard of rarity in Bordeaux. Their roots can be traced back to 1826, when Hugh Barton bought 50 hectares of vines in the heart of St Julien and subsequently Château Leoville Barton was made a 2ème Cru Classe in the 1855 classification. Today, the Château is run by Anthony Barton’s daughter Lillian and her son Damien Barton-Sartorius. Unusual for the Médoc region, there is no château based on the property. As a result, the wines are vinified and aged at neighbouring Langoa Barton, which as its name suggests, is also owned by the Barton family.Read less

Region

St Julien

St Julien is like the middle child of the Médoc - not as assertive as Pauillac or as coquettish as Margaux. It lies firmly between the two more outspoken communes and as a result produces a blend of them both. St Julien's wines have often been sought out by aficionados for their balance and consistency, particularly in the UK. Yet due to its middle child nature, it can occasionally be overlooked globally and as a result underrated by those markets outside the UK. Despite the fact that it has no first growths, it has several second growths including Léoville Las Cases, Léoville Barton, Léoville Poyferré and Ducru Beaucaillou as well as the celebrated châteaux such as Talbot and Beychevelle.
