Winemaker Notes

#6 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2012

This vintage, still in its youth, evoques a warm, sented atmosphere reminiscent of linden blossom and hyacinths. It's just like biting into a fresh grape. This is a robust wine with deep, long flavours. There is nothing aggressive here, the silky, elegant, ever accessible tannins roll like marbles around the palate.

Critical Acclaim

WE 98
Wine Enthusiast
A major success vintage. The wine exhibits extreme richness of the fruit, with all its sweet blackberry flavors. It also has underlying firm structure, density and solid tannins. Bring in the acidity at the end, and this is both impressive and ready for long-term aging.
Cellar Selection
JS 96
James Suckling
A super-classic St.-Julien that only has a hint of the opulence of the vintage. The beautiful cassis fruit and elegantly dry tannins push briskly through the long and graceful finish.
D 96
Decanter
This stands out above its sibling estate by some distance in this vintage - in fact I would say that the closing of the gap between Léoville and Langoa has been the biggest marker of the past decade for them. This is a gorgeous 2009 - rich, measured and slow-burning, full of rippling tannins and good acidity and freshness. The gorgeous, subtle smoke notes aligns with St-Julien freshness and elegance, with a punch of power. Great stuff.
WS 95
Wine Spectator
This is powerful Cabernet, with gutsy weight, but polished feel to the fresh plum, warm blackberry sauce, bittersweet ganache and roasted apple wood notes. Long and tarry through the finish, but still invigorating despite its heft. Will need some time to round fully into form. Best from 2017 through 2035.
RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Medium to deep garnet colored, the 2009 Leoville Barton gives up expressive cherry cordial, warm cassis and blackberry tart scents with nuances of menthol, cigar box and fallen leaves. Medium-bodied and elegantly played with loads of freshness and soft tannins, it has a long, perfumed finish.

Chateau Leoville Barton, France
Chateau Leoville Barton Chateau Leoville Barton Winery Image

In 1826, Hugh Barton, already proprietor of Chateau Langoa, purchased part of the big Leoville estate. His part then became known as Léoville Barton. Six generations of Bartons have since followed, and continued to preserve the quality of the wine, classified as a Second Growth in 1855.

In 1983, Anthony Barton, the present owner, was given the property by his uncle Ronald Barton who had himself inherited it in 1929. Anthony Barton's daughter Lilian Barton Sartorius now helps her father in managing the estate. Together, they maintain the traditional methods of winemaking, producing a typical Saint-Julien of elegance and distinction. The Château Léoville Barton is the property of the Barton’s family and Lilian Barton Sartorius manages it with her two children, Mélanie and Damien.
