Château Léoville Barton

Château Léoville Barton

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

The 1982 Chateau Léoville-Barton red wine is a stunning bottling from this famed vintage in Bordeaux. Generously shared by some friends, and needing very little time in the decanter to evolve, the 1982 Léoville-Barton opens with a captivating nose of sour red cherry, cigar box with shades of white truffle and a striking herbaceousness. There is a wonderful, seamless quality to this wine that evokes a harmonious balance on the mid-palate. A bright saline streak dashes through this incredible wine. Showing a wonderfully soft mouthfeel, the wine slowly unveils layers of sour red fruits, exotic spices, red bell pepper, anise and hints of wild blackberry that all marvelously combine with the toasty oak. While absolutely delightful now, this stunning wine will has more than a decade of life left. Drink 2019-2035- 95

Grenache, cinsault, Syrah I was drinking red but opened this to cool down the seared tuna I made with crusted peppercorns. Paired nicely. Crisp, dry, refreshing. Enjoyed. Will bring rest of bottle to the beach this weekend. I bought this several weeks ago as a buy one get one free at Publix. Very good buy. Would buy again not on sale. — 15 days ago

Clos du Marquis Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

Really nice — earthy but balanced by nice fruit with a spine of acidity. Not as floral as past Clos du Marquis - less Petite Verdot? — a month ago

Interesting. I brought one home to try the other day. Sounds like it’s worth a look.
