Sipping Fine Wine Delectable Pro

In 1826, Hugh Barton, already owner of Chateau Langoa (1821) purchased part of Leoville estate, then became known as Léoville Barton. 6 generations of Bartons continue making wine for this 1855 classified 2nd Growth. A blend of 83% Cab Sauv, 15% Merlot, 2% Cab Franc. Deep red with aromas of ripe red berry fruits with hints of licorice notes. On the palate blackberry & rasberry with sweet earthy oak and floral spice tones. Fine tannins, lingering with mineral ending. Almost ready, this fine wine can be sipped young, wait a year or 2.

Friday night and I had a taste for a Bordeaux, so I stopped on my way home and picked up the 2014 Château Léoville Barton from Saint-Julien. A beautiful expression of a classical Left Bank Bordeaux Blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc. The nose reveals beautiful dark fruit of black raspberry, black cherry, black plum, black currant, a touch of strawberry, graphite, mocha, vanilla, clove and an earthy component. On the palate you have sweet dark fruit that is beautifully rounded that continues through with black cherry, blackberry, blueberry, black currant, plum, licorice, a herbal note and some rich earth. The wine is medium to full bodied with a racey medium + acidity and medium + chewy tannins that leads right into a long fruit filled finish. A nice wine that has a lot of years ahead of it if you would like to cellar this gem. Now this is definitely how I like to start my weekend off right. Have a safe an enjoyable weekend. Nostrovia!

Blue fruits shine with dark cassis and dark chocolate. Finishes with dark and mid red fruits.

Leather, vanilla, cheese rinds, and petrichor notes. Opaque colour with a little bit of sediment on the appearance. Tannins has softened to a nice velvety texture on the palate. Tasted a half bottle so it probably aged a bit faster than a standard.

Open for several hours. Plum, blackberry, forest floor, dried leaves.. classic Bordeaux nose. Fresh, juicy, young. Leather notes. Tannins are relatively soft, and juicy dark fruit sings on the finish.

Tasted 1/20/2017 At UGCB 2014 Vintage tasting in Miami. At the Biltmore. Mixed black and red fruits on the nose, with a firm palate of cassis, earth, and and some wood. Nose a little more subdued, and lacking some of the richness of the Beychevelle at this stage, but this seems built to age and will likeley develop with time. 3/22-23/9/4/4 + 50= 92-93 pts

Wonderful Bordeaux. Fruit forward with cassis and chocolate on the finish. I love it. Will just get better with age.

Showing the best of this tasting so far. Lots of green vine though. I'd like to see riper, less-green fruit.
