About Chateau Leoville Barton 2006 Cru Classe, St. Julien

Here is a rare find from the 2006 vintage! Classified in 1855, this Chateau has been run by seven generations of the Barton family. In 1983, Anthony Barton, the present owner, was given the property by his uncle Ronald Barton. Anthony Barton's daughter Lilian Barton Sartorius now helps her father in managing the estate. Together, they maintain the traditional methods but produce wine that has skyrocketed the stature of this 2nd Growth.

Wine Enthusiast Magazine selected this as a Top Wine of 2009. They scored it 94 points and said "Right at the top of its form, this 2006 is one of the finest wines to come out of the vintage. The wine is structured and dense, but with such heartwarming ripe fruit that the tannins are almost submerged. There is just a hint of wood, but juicy black currant continues right through to the end. In a year, the fruit will lessen, and long aging begin."

Wine Spectator selected this as a Top 100 Wine of 2009. They scored it 94 points saying  "There's a great dark color to this, with intense aromas of cedar, wood, new leather and crushed blackberry. Full-bodied, with loads of fruit and a firm, powerful palate. Long and mouthpuckering. A muscular baby. Best after 2015."
