Château Léoville Barton, St Julien 2017

RRP £320

The Léovilles are always beguilingly different, the three graces, for all that difficult to separate qualitatively. Maybe the aromatic cigar box and violets just gives the Léoville Barton the edge in 2017; benchmark finesse and layered complexity underwrite the thesis and the amazing finish, compact yet generous, just about seals the deal.
