Tasting Notes

The 2019 La Réserve de Léoville Barton lacks cohesion and freshness on the nose compared to its peers, one of the few to display traits of over-ripeness and a little VA. The palate is medium-bodied with smooth tannins, quite saturated in style, fleshy and generous. A 2019 built to give pleasure in its youth. Tasted blind at the Southwold annual tasting.

Score: 88

The 2019 La Réserve de Léoville Barton offers a mixture of red and black fruit, quite perfumed and floral, with crushed violet. The palate is well balanced, very supple, pure and elegant, leading to a delineated finish. This is lovely in an old-school way and will only need a couple of years in bottle.

Score: 90

A total charmer with plenty of up-front appeal, the 2019 La Réserve De Léoville Barton offers up lots of red and black currants, cedar pencil, leafy herbs, and a touch of spring flowers in a more medium-bodied, nicely balanced, fleshy, and forward style. It will keep for 10-12 years.

Tasted blind. Fresh, dark crimson. Light nose. Pure Cabernet fruit and some acidity, but not much subtlety or tannin. Clean and fresh. It may well improve in bottle. 14%

Attractive, with personality and texture to the loganberry and blackberry fruit. The muscular tannins have juice running through them, and overall this has plenty of lift and tension while remaining appealingly unfussy.
