Château Léoville Barton 1990 Saint-Julien

The Barton family's passion for wine is reflected in the elegance and consistency of Château Léoville Barton. This estate was classified as a 2nd Grand Cru Classé in 1855 and lies within the iconic terroir of Saint Julien in the Médoc.

Bordeaux's Left Bank at its most sublime, and from one of its most successful and sought-after estates. Here, a confluence of perfect vintage, world-class producer and supreme terroir representing the apogee of Saint-Julien expression and provenance. An extremely rare bottle of claret for a very special festive occasion.

"Dark garnet. Complex nose. Sweet and maybe just a notch riper than ideal for Léoville Barton but giving lots of pleasure now. Bone-dry finish but very Léoville Barton! Lovely nose and some freshness on the palate suggests there is no hurry to drink this."18 points, Jancis Robinson, April 2022.

"Damien Barton-Sartorius was born in 1990, and he’ll be happy to hear that this vintage stands up well against the 1989. It has clearer tannins, is deeper and still virile, taking a long time to open in the glass but then holding on, getting more and more interesting. Still pretty young, with rich, velvety and well-handled tannins, plus a vibrant core of cassis and mulberry notes. Well balanced, confident and deeply spiced."94 points, Decanter, October 2018.
