The vineyards that make up Leoville Barton are from the Leoville estate that was broken up in the 18th century when split between four heirs. This made three producers of wines from the Leoville estate: Leoville-Las-Cases, Leoville Poyferre and Leoville Barton.
Leoville Barton has remained in the Barton family since 1826, whilst still maintaining an estate in Ireland. The estate was classified a second growth in the 1855 classification and has consistently produced long-lived classic Cabernet-based claret.
This is a powerful Léoville-Barton. It has concentrated fruit, tannins and acidity all in perfect harmony. There is an exciting underlying minerality to the concentrated blackberry and cedar notes, shining a light on the classic 2006 vintage as well as showing its St-Julien roots.
