Leoville-Barton-St-Julien-2016

Leoville Barton, (St. Julien), 2016

2016 Bordeaux Future
“The 2016 Leoville-Barton is a blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Merlot picked from 29 September until 13 October, matured in 60% new oak and delivering 13% alcohol. It has a more intense bouquet compared to the Langoa-Barton, plenty of intense blackberry and raspberry fruit, minerals, cedar and a hint of licorice. The palate is a little chewy on the entry with good grip in the mouth. This demonstrates the backbone of the finish, just the right amount of spiciness with excellent salinity on the long finish. It is not a once-in-a-lifetime Leoville Barton, but (as usual) it just seems to do everything right. Maybe it’s not quite up there with the stellar 2015 Léoville Barton, which I re-tasted at the time, but it is not far off.” -Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (93-95 Points)
