Leoville Barton 1991

Chateau Leoville Barton

26 years

If you are looking for a terrific value from a so-called "off" year, check out Leoville-Barton's 1991! It possesses a deep ruby color, a big, cedary, blackcurrant, and herb-scented nose, and ripe, rich, medium-bodied flavors that offer impressive concentration, moderate tannin, and admirable length. This impressive Leoville-Barton is significantly better than vintages such as 1981 and 1979. It should drink well for 10-15 years.

Chateau Leoville Barton

Chateau Leoville Barton is an expansive vineyard in the Saint Julien appellation, located in Bordeaux, France. The primary red wine produced by here is also labeled Chateau Leoville Barton, and is rated a Second Growth according to the Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855.

Chateau Leoville Barton does not have its own traditional chateau building, as is common for most wine production estates. The Chateau building depicted on the label of the Leoville Barton bottles is actually the Chateau Langoa Barton, which is also where the wines are produced.

Leoville Barton along with Leoville Las Cases and Leoville Poyferre used to be one large Leoville estate. Since 1836, the Leoville Barton estate was under the ownership of the Barton Family, and currently it belongs to Anthony Barton, who has run the property since 1986.

The property extends around 48 hectares along the Gironde river, with soil dynamics of mainly gravel and clay. Grape composition consists of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. Along with the primary wine, another second wine labeled La Reserve de Leoville Barton is also in production.
