Château Léoville Barton 2017 Saint-Julien, Bordeaux, France

Classified as a Second Growth (Deuxièmes Cru). 

Winemaker: Eric Boissenot

Farming: Sustainable

Varieties: 93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot

Terroir: Clay, Gravel. 

Vinification: Manual harvest. After the de-stemming, the berries are carefully sorted, crushed and poured in wooden vats thermo-regulated, according to their plots. The alcoholic fermentation lasts from 7 to 10 days and the extraction is always respectful of the juice by adjusting the number of pumping depending on the cuvées and the vintages. The maceration is about 3 weeks then the juice is drawn in barrels, lot by lot. 

Aging: The wine is then aged between 16 and 18 months in French oak barrels of which 60% are brand new, in a cellar maintained at 15 degrees C. 

Tasting notes: Intense purple color with a bright nose of blackfruit, graphite and toast. On the palate, the attack is frank and the tannins are precise and remarkably delicate. The wine develops a beautiful tension and freshness, but wil benefit tremendously from cellaring.
