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

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.

"The 2018 Leoville-Barton is fabulous. Graphite, gravel, crème de cassis, mint, violet, spice and exotic spices are some of the many notes that infuse this stunningly beautiful unctuous Saint-Julien. In 2018 Leoville-Barton has an extra dimension of volume and resonance, yet it never loses its super-classic mid-weight structure and regal bearing." Antonio Galloni

"Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2018 Leoville Barton simply sings of crushed black cherries, blackcurrant cordial and wild blueberries with touches of violets, dark chocolate, allspice and cardamom with a waft of stewed tea. Full-bodied, rich and decadently fruited in the mouth, the generous fruit has a solid structure of firm, ripe, grainy tannins and oodles of freshness, finishing long and layered." robertparker.com
