Tasting Notes

The 2014 Réserve de Léoville Barton has a little jamminess on the nose (one of the few Left Bank 2014s to demonstrate this.) It feels a little volatile and lacks some cohesion. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red and black fruit, voluminous and smooth, quite enjoying to drink even if it is not an intellectual prospect. Tasted blind at the annual Southwold tasting.

Score: 86

Aromas of currants and berries with flowers and spices. Some balsamic vinegar, too. Medium to full body, firm and compacted tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Solid young wine. Excellent second wine of Léoville Barton. Try in 2021.
