Tight and flavorful with blueberries, currants and fresh earth character plus just a hint of minerals. Medium to full body, fine tannins and a fresh finish. Drink or hold.
Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux tasting. The 2012 Réserve de Léoville-Barton has a fruit-driven, open, pure raspberry and crushed strawberry scented bouquet that is simple but designed to seduce. "Punter friendly," as they say. The palate is medium-bodied with a sweet entry, fleshy in the mouth, soft tannin with a smudged, easy-drinking finish. (NM)
A bright, floral-edged version, with a violet note weaving around the open-knit cherry and pomegranate flavors. Modest fruit on the finish gives way to an austere savory edge. (JM, Web-2015)
