Classic Leoville Barton. Except it drinks well young. Gorgeous, ruby, rich, lush blue, purple and black fruits. Great acidity, soft earthiness, soft ft florals, all these wines have great acidity, structure and balance. The drinking window on the 16’s will be wide. Buy a bunch.

Drank 1/18/19 at the Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux event in Miami.  All wines from the 2016 Vintage.

Tasting pour, no formal notes taken.  Most of these wines are very tight, and will require 5-15 years to really come together.  Many will likely improve a few points with time.

The most closed wine of the night. More red fruit, with frim tannins. This one will likely take several years to unwind, but shows potential. Harder to taste at this stage.

Not a pop & pour. Great nose to start but not drinkable.
Day 2 plus 5 hour decant is the spot to drink early.

17+/20 (92+/100) В аромате много специй, чёрная смородина, чернослив, ежевика и чёрный шоколад. Высокая кислотность и интенсивные, сухие танины. Концентрированно ягодное во вкусе. Молодо с большим потенциалом. (02.10.2017)
