Wijn reserveren

We leggen primeur-wijnen vast op een persoonlijk reserve-overzicht dat gedurende de campagne wordt opgebouwd. Dat is handig omdat de primeurs gespreid over de maanden april, mei en juni uitkomen. Na afloop van de campagne, in juli, wordt een overzichtelijke factuur voor het totaal opgemaakt.

Proefnotitie

Veel zwart-paars fruit, stevig en sappig. Gevolgd door een lang en stenig einde, met koelte. Goed!

Neal Martin, Vinous – "The 2021 Léoville-Barton was picked from 27 September until 7 October, matured in 60% new oak. The alcohol is 13.12%. It has a clean and pure bouquet with blackberry, bilberry, cedar and hints of shucked oyster shell: focused and very well delineated, classic in style. The palate has a smooth and cohesive entry, very well-knit with beautifully integrated oak. Crisp acidity with the perfect amount of tension on the classically-styled finish, this Léoville Barton demonstrates the advantages of their brand new cellar (even though the reception was not finished in time!). I cannot see any reason not to own a few bottles of this in your cellar." 93-95

Jane Anson, Inside Bordeaux – "St Julien’s location next to the river Garonne saved it from the worst of the frost, and this is one of the best wines in the appellation. It has energy and plenty of depths of fruit to work through, with powerful spice notes of clove, white pepper and turmeric, with the fresh acidities in the cassis and bilberry fruit turned into a prop for propelling things forward through the palate. And even if all this wasn’t the case, this is a wine to buy in 2021 in memory of Anthony Barton, long-term owner and Bordeaux legend, who died in January 2022. 60% new oak. Tasted twice." 94

William Kelley, Wine Advocate – "A terrific success, the 2021 Léoville Barton unwinds in the glass with aromas of blackcurrant, wild berries and plums mingled with hints of pencil shavings, loamy soil and cigar wrapper. Medium to full-bodied, deep and seamless, it's concentrated and tensile, with beautifully refined tannins, lively acids and all the class that an elevated percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon growing in deep gravel can provide. It's the first vintage vinified in the Barton family's new winery, and I suspect that contributes to the ultra-refined quality of tannin this year. The blend is 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc. Tasted three times." 93-95
