Château Léoville Barton, a family-owned, Second Growth Grand Cru Classe vineyard, produces classic terroir-driven Bordeaux wines. The estate is one of the Bordeaux “Super Seconds” and its red wines are on the radar of all serious collectors.
Interestingly, there is no Château on the Leoville estate, and the wines are made at their neighboring property, Langoa Barton.
The 2010 Leoville Barton is deep garnet in color, and the nose is a little tired, with notes of stewed plums and dried cherries over hints of balsamic, tobacco, spice box and fried herbs. The medium to full-bodied palate has a solid backbone of firm, chewy tannins and plenty of freshness supporting the mature fruit, finishing spicy.
