The 2016 La Réserve de Léoville Barton has a well-defined bouquet of crisp red fruit (strawberry and cranberry), plus touches of crushed stone tucked underneath. The medium-bodied palate offers light tannins and a fine bead of acidity. Quite elegant in style, with a precise finish. Classic Claret – no more, no less. Tasted blind at the Southwold tasting. 90/100 Vinous.
