Château Léoville Barton, AOC Saint Julien 2016

RRP £62

Slowly coming out of a shell, it needs swirling to display aromatic charm of blackcurrant, dark plum and cigar box. The palate is layered, elegant and deep, with much density, but this wine demands cellaring until 2025 for an early drinking window.
