    Chateau Leoville Barton 2012: a wine of great elegance from Saint-Julien

    The 2nd Classified Growth, Chateau Leoville Barton, is a red wine produced in the Saint-Julien appellation. The vineyard is planted on hillsides composed of gravel from the Garonne on a bed of gravel-clay limestone. The wine is aged in oak barrels (60% are new) for 16-18 months. Chateau Leoville Barton 2012 is a blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc.

    Chateau Leoville Barton 2012 develops aromas of white flowers (acacias), black fruits with notes of candied violets. The wine has an unforgettably long finish in the mouth.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    Dense ruby/purple, with cassis licorice and forest floors notes in the aromatics, Léoville-Barton's 2012 is a relatively big, rich, masculine style of wine. This full-bodied wine needs 5-8 years of cellaring and should evolve easily for 25-30 years.
