1999 VINTAGE

94 Full colour. Less backward than Leoville Las Cases. Very lovely, concentrated Cabernet fruit. Very classy, fullish body, very harmonious. Very concentrated, excellent tannins and a very classy finish.
2001 tasting. A superb 1999. Very good, rich mocha nose and flavour. Good flesh, very oaky and tannic.
91 A powerful nose, with sweet tobacco and sultana, follows through to a full body, featuring ultrafine tannins and a long, long finish, as well as lovely texture. This needs more time. Still tight and structured.—'89/'99 Bordeaux blind retrospective (2009). Best after 2011. –JS

"Leoville-Barton is a full, Cabernet Sauvignon wine of considerable depth and distinction. It is not as austere as Leoville-Las-Cases but more classic than Leoville-Poyferre." Clive Coates, Master of Wine

‘This is a wonderfully consistent Chateau, particularly since the 1970’s when stricter selection and improvements in vinification became evident.’ David Peppercorn, Master of Wine

‘One of the best buys among the super-seconds, this wine is, however, tannic and needs considerable time to fully express itself. While Leoville-Barton rarely attains the level of Leoville-Las-Cases, it is much less expensive.’ Robert Parker
