Leoville Barton 2009 (98WE) (750ML) FR Flag Future Arrival
Leoville Barton 2009 (98WE) (750ML)
93+ WA 95 WS
[#6 of Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2012] 95 Points, Wine Spectator: This is powerful Cabernet, with gutsy weight, but also polished feel to the fresh plum, warm blackberry sauce, bittersweet ganache and roasted apple wood notes. Long and tarry through the finish, but still invigorating despite its heft. Needs some time to round fully into form. Best from 2017 through 2035. Tasted twice, with consistent notes." 03/12 [#3 Wine Enthusiast Cellar Selections 2012] 98 Points, Wine Enthusiast: A major success of the vintage. The wine exhibits extreme richness of the fruit, with all its sweet blackberry flavors. It also has underlying firm structure, density and solid tannins. Bring in the acidity at the end." 2/12 96 Points, James Suckling: "Very floral, with fresh mushrooms and currants on the nose. Full body, with powerful tannins, yet polished and refined. Lovely length. Vibrant acidity. Well structured." 2/12 94 Points, Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Served blind at the Southwold 2009 tasting. There is a lot of fruit concentration on the nose of the Leoville Barton 2009 with lifted, ebullient blackberry, dark plum and graphite billowing with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe black fruits and a veneer of creamy oak that is nicely integrated into the fabric of the wine. This is forward and generous, but does not fall short on flavour and complexity. Very fine. Tasted January 2013." 7/13 Wine Journal
