About This Wine...
“The Leoville-Barton ’99 has a well-defined nose, more restrained and extrovert than the Langoa, with notes of blackberry, wild hedgerow/woodland, Chinese tea and a dash of white pepper. Very good definition. The palate is medium-bodied, sturdy tannins, a little pepper again on the entry with very good structure on the mid-palate. Quite foursquare and ‘correct’ with an edgy, off-dry, very Saint Julien’ finish. Very fine – very…English!”

“Dark, mossy nose. Lots of luscious fruit. Very dense and complete. Bit dusty but great balance. Would not disappoint any claret lover and may gain exciting complexity. Drink 2008 – 2024.”
