ABOUT THE WINE
Chateau Leoville-Barton  is the smallest portion of the great Leoville estate and has been owned by the Barton family since 1826. There is no Chateau and the wine is made at Langoa Barton. Leoville Barton's 48 hectares of vineyards are located in the east of the St-Julien wine appellation and lie on gravelly-clay soils. Since Anthony Barton took over the reins from his Uncle Ronald in the mid-80s, quality has soared at Leoville Barton and the wine has gone from being a solid mid-league performing 2ème Cru classe to one of the most exciting and scintillating wines in St. Julien.

TASTING NOTES
introverted with notes of cigar box, earth, wet sand and chestnut. The palate is medium-bodied, quite elegant, refined and harmonious with a firm mid-palate. Cedar, sandalwood and dried herbs. Austere, conservative but classy, there is a chance that the '89 may outlast the '90.

FOOD PAIRING
Smoked duck, beef stew or lamb leg are all perfect pairings.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
This wine is good drinking now but can still reach its peak in the future 5-8 years.
