This Château is always one of the best selling wines, due to its consistent high quality and the long standing commitment by the Barton family to maintain a sensible pricing policy. The vineyards are intensely planted with 9,100 vines per ha. Aged for 18 months in 60% new oak, this is a balanced and impressive claret, very much in the Leoville style.
Hedonistic and generous as always, yet with a firm structure of tannins that support this generous sweet fruit. Ripe, deep, almost opulent and showing poise and length. A firm, well balanced, complex and decadent wine.
