Estate Notes

Château Léoville Barton 2002 was purchased in its original wooden case.

Château Léoville Barton is owned and run by the congenial Anthony Barton and his daughter Lilian, who have succeeded in maintaining its reputation for producing traditional top-flight Bordeaux wines with great ageing potential, yet relatively small Saint-Julien price tags.

There are few Bordeaux châteaux today that consistently receive such favourable press from journalists and consumers alike, yet remain such good value-for-money. Thanks to the Barton’s noble aim to produce classic Saint-Julien wines that many consumers can afford, Léoville Barton is one such château.

Reviews

“Very attractive blackberry and vanilla aromas follow through to a full-bodied palate, with chewy tannins and a medium finish.” Wine Spectator

“Even better from bottle than from cask, and one of the finest wines of the vintage, this dense purple-colored 2002 reveals wonderfully sweet notes of charcoal, fresh mushrooms, smoke, earth, leather, cassis, and cedar. Full-bodied, highly extracted, broodingly backward, dense, and deep, this impressively endowed offering is built for the long term.” Robert Parker

“Complex nose melds black cherry, cedar, graphite, menthol and chocolate. Cool, penetrating flavors of blue and black fruits, minerals, licorice and menthol, with hints of chocolatey ripeness. Rather laid-back Bordeaux , with the structure for mid-term aging. Finishes with firm but fine tannins and lovely length.” Stephen Tanzer
