    Very dark color, very aromatic and intense, concentrated and complex, bit compact now but this wine has a ton going on. Big and study but with elegance and purity. Excellent. Could be one of the best wines of the vintage and should age well over the next 15-20+ years.

    One of the best wines of 2018. Tasted four times and each time we were blown away with its quality. 82% Cab Sauv and 18% Merlot. Blackish color-big, serious wine but it still has elegance and finesse. Fabulous texture Such a long, sweet finish. The best young Leoville barton I have ever tasted! Packed with fruit-seamless. Buy it and enjoy for a long time.
    Drink from 2023 to 2045

    This is full of dark, concentrated fruit and peppery graphite on the nose, with just a touch of baking spice and toast. On the palate, more red fruits come out with nice herbs and spice underlying, and great elegance and precision from the firm tannins and great acidity. Another shining example of the greatness from St. Julien in 2018.

    On our first day in Bordeaux, we tasted through 150 wines from the 2018 vintage. This turned every head in the room and was clearly the wine of the tasting. Leoville-Barton will have a lot of competition in a superb St-Julien vintage, but it is easily among the elite. Deeply colored with a subtle, compact nose, it follows through with resounding fruit in a textured and deeply fruited palate. A masterclass in composition, it is a precise and structured wine that will dole out a ton of pleasure over the coming decades.
