About This Wine...

“Well-mannered, classic, elegant claret; a lovely fragrant nose, all violets and roses, smooth blackcurrant fruits that glide across the palate and a dry finish” Wilson on Wine 2019: The Wines to Drink This Year

Sustained purple color. Nose of red fruits, cherry, currant which harmoniously blends with toasted notes. Ample and well balanced wine on the palate with soft tannins and integrated oak.

Grape Varieties: Merlot 46%; Cabernet Sauvignon 36%; Cabernet Franc 16%; Petit Verdot 2% – from vines averaging 35 years old.

Anthony Barton has lived in Bordeaux for 55 years, but he is no Frenchman. Indeed, he is an Irish country gentleman transplanted to Saint-Julien in the Médoc, where for over 20 years he has owned and run Châteaux Léoville-Barton and its neighbour Langoa-Barton. Barton has never had time for the greed that characterises so much of the Bordeaux scene, so his wines have always offered exceptional value. We are delighted to offer the Reserve de Léoville Barton, the second wine from both Châteaux, along with the Grand Vin from Châteaux Léoville and Langoa-Barton.

Sustained purple color. Nose of red fruits, cherry, currant which harmoniously blends with toasted notes. Ample and well balanced wine on the palate with soft tannins and integrated oak

The Estate

The wine tradition in the French branch of the Rothschild family was born in 1868 with the purchase of Château Lafite by James de Rothschild. After more than a century of family history linked to the world of wine, Baron Edmond de Rothschild (great grandson of James) extended this family tradition in 1973 by acquiring two Listrac and Moulis Crus Bourgeois in Medoc: Château Clarke and Château Malmaison. He then created the Compagnie Vinicole Baron Edmond de Rothschild. Baron Benjamin de Rothschild acquired the superb property at Château des Laurets in 2003, seeking to develop the full potential of this vineyard straddling two AOCs: Puisseguin Saint-Émilion and Montagne Saint-Émilion
