    Every once in a while a world-class Bordeaux is under-rated at release, providing a window of opportunity for those in-the-know to have extended access at great pricing. This is exactly where we are with the complex, structured, and refined 2009 Léoville-Barton. Almost a decade on, this famed Second Growth is starting to open up showing a core of signature bright red fruit peeking through the very fine-grained tannin. It is a great mix of classic Bordeaux in a modern vintage - one that demands time but is expertly crafted. It is not out of the question to open it now and check in on it, but prepare it with a long decant. This gem will certainly have plentiful upside for the next 10 to 20+ years.

    A textbook Leoville-Barton, the fantastic '09 opens with pure crushed currant aromas and a lovely, leafy undercurrent of Cabernet complexity--just a beautiful nose. Black fruits on the palate are supported by elegant tannins. While the wine is still in its youth, the fruit expression and overall balance suggest a long life ahead.

    77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22.5% Merlot, 0.5% Cabernet Franc. Probably the best I’ve tasted from Anthony and I have been tasting his wines since 1973. Tons of fruit masks the high tannin levels-will age for a very long time. 95 points! Still a superb buy for the cellar. Cb 2015
