Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate
94

94 - 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.Lisa Perrotti-Brown, March 2019

93+ - Head and shoulders above its stablemate, Langoa Barton, proprietor Anthony Barton’s 2009 Leoville Barton is another massive, excruciatingly rich, tannic, potentially long-aged wine. Meant for consumers with old fashioned tastes, it boasts a dense opaque purple color as well as a bouquet of licorice, forest floor, unsmoked cigar tobacco and a hint of earth. The wine reveals tremendous denseness and richness, a broad, savory mouthfeel and elevated tannins in the finish. However, there is a sweetness to the tannins and no trace of bitterness and astringency, always a sign of a top vintage as well as fully mature grapes. Still a monolithic baby, this 2009 should be forgotten for at least a decade, and consumed over the next 30-50 years.

The 2009 Léoville-Barton has a much better bouquet than the Langoa with better definition and focus: blackberry, raspberry coulis, cedar and touches of graphite that gain intensity with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, a fine bead of acidity, lightly spiced with a graphite infused finish that feels very persistent. Tasted at BI Wines & Spirits' Ten Year On tasting. - vinous.com, March 2019

[77CS/23M] Softly sweet blackberry nose; a generous constitution: rich core, fine firm tannins, fresh acidity; ripe and fleshy blackberry/blackcurrant fruit to taste; vibrant, gently complex, easy, abundant, satisfying wine; a gratifying classic St Julien. Sweet and juicy, long and refined too, with excellent, gently scented length. Perhaps not the absolute scope of the top 2nd Growth St Juliens, but this will make a gorgeous glass of mature claret. 2020-40

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. (Horizontal Tasting, London, 2019) - Stuart Pigott, jamessuckling.com, March 2019
