Leoville Barton 2023

Leoville Barton

Case Format: 6x75cl

Drinking Window: 2050.0

Forming a poetic blend of plump blackcurrant and cassis notes, Léoville Barton have created a spectacular wine, that with age, develops a delightfully warm cedar character. Its alchemic blend takes us through moments of potent acidity, mellow spices and luscious tannins. Incorporating a mixture of Cabernet Sauvignon (c.74%), Merlot (c.23%) and Cabernet Franc (c.3%), Léoville Barton have created a Bordeaux that thrives amidst the Saint-Julien terroir. Its gravelly-clay soil sees the vineyard withstand whatever weather each vintage brings, culminating in a premium, longstanding wine that performs its best after around 10-15 years of bottle ageing. One of the fourteen Deuxième Grand Cru Classé in the Médoc, demand is always high for Léoville Barton, and we can sure see why.

CRITIC REVIEWS

Jeb Dunnuck

The 2023 Château Leoville Barton is another terrific wine from this château, and it plays in the fresh, vibrant, lively style of the vintage beautifully. Utterly classic blackcurrants, ripe tobacco, graphite, and cedar pencil notes define the aromatics, and this beauty is medium to full-bodied, has terrific concentration, the pure, focused, mineral-driven style of the vintage, building yet ripe tannins, and a great finish. It has plenty of acidity as well as tannins and is built for the cellar. The blend is 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, and 3% Cabernet Franc, raised in 60% new oak. Harvest dates were the 12th of September to the 2nd of October.

The tannins here are cashmere-like. You can touch it, but at the same time it is weightless and beautiful. Medium- to full-bodied and textural. Soars at the end. This is really seamless and dialed in. Third year using the cellar. 87% cabernet sauvignon, 10% merlot and 3% cabernet franc.
