The opulence of this wine proves it is the fruit of a sun-blessed vintage, yet with none of the excesses associated with this. The power is certainly present but not domineering thanks to the lively freshness and complexity. There are also hints of sugar, toast, tar and spices.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate

Medium to deep garnet colored, the 2009 Leoville Barton gives up expressive cherry cordial, warm cassis and blackberry tart scents with nuances of menthol, cigar box and fallen leaves. Medium-bodied and elegantly played with loads of freshness and soft tannins, it has a long, perfumed finish. Reviewed by: Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Issue date: March 2019. Drinking window: Drink Date: 2019 - 2037.
