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 2eme Cru Classe to one of the most exciting and scintillating wines in St. Julien.

TASTING NOTES
A spectacular success, the opaque plum-coloured 2003 Leoville Barton is still on the young side of its plateau of maturity. It exhibits a striking bouquet of forest floor and black currants as well as a full-bodied, exuberant, youthful style, an opaque plum/ruby colour, a lot of complexity, and striking depth and richness. This is a profound, stunning effort from Anthony Barton and his team.

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

FRIARWOOD SAYS
It should continue to provide immense pleasure for 20-30 years.
