Medoc crus classes 2009
Château Léoville-Barton, St-Julien 2CC
Decanter average score: 17.5pts/20 (91/100pts)
Individual judge’s scores: SB 18.5 AG 17.5 SS 16.5
Elegant bouquet of ripe cassis and plum. Rich, plump and full-bodied – concentrated but not excessively so. It’s suave, effortless and classy; a truly delicious St-Julien with fine balance and very good length.
Price £70–£111 Widely available at leading Bordeaux merchants
Judges: Steven Brook, Alun Griffiths MW and Steven Spurrier
