Chateau Leoville Barton St. Julien 2007
|Region||France, Bordeaux, St. Julien|
|Brand||Chateau Leoville Barton|
Wine EnthusiastThis is a great success for the year, a wine that is dense, characterized by balance between sweet fruit and solid tannins. Spice from the finely judged wood aging adds extra complexity, as do the plum and berry fruits. For aging.
Wine SpectatorThis has a wonderful nose, with blackberry, currant and cigar box. Complex and full-bodied, with layers of ripe, polished tannins and a very long finish. Juicy, yet refined and agile. Best after 2014. 17,500 cases made.
Wine AdvocateThis muscular, highly-extracted, structured 2007 reveals a boatload of tannin (unusual for this vintage). The wine's dark ruby/purple color is followed by aromas of cassis, new saddle leather, and forest floor offered in a structured, backward, almost unapproachable format. Give it 2-3 years of cellaring, and if the tannins resolve themselves, it will merit a higher score. It should last for 12-20 years.
