Château Léoville Barton 1996 comes from an excellent Bordeaux vintage for the northern Médoc, which illustrates why it is the finest winemaking district on the planet. It was purchased in its original wooden case.
Château Léoville Barton is the smallest division of the Léoville estate and has been owned by the Barton family since the early 19th century. The wine is a powerful, tannic masterpiece that develops the classic Saint-Julien cedary character with age. Barton’s prices are also a breath of fresh air in today’s heady market.
