Château Léoville Barton, 2ème cru classé 2009

RRP £110

This is a lovely wine. Thoroughbred, graceful, and confident on the nose. Then in the mouth, the finest of grains, like washed silk; such a beautiful texture. On the finish, a distinct rose petal note, and tonnes of tannic grip to take this into the long haul. A triumph.
