"84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc. The final complete vintage of the late Anthony Barton. Pristine raspberry and blackberry fruit aromas, with cedar and fine earthy minerality. The medium-to-full bodied palate is remarkably pure and unadorned, letting the ripe dark fruit speak. Deft tannins, on the right side of sensitive – which is to say, with personality! A strong Léoville-Barton which has risen above the challenges of the season. 60% new oak. 13% abv. 39 hl/ha.
