A fabulous wine from this venerable estate, the 2014 L‚oville-Barton is super-impressive today. Dark red stone fruits, wild flowers, mint, spices and raspberry all show the inflections of invigorating freshness that are such a signature of the vintage. Hints of crŠme de cassis, blackberry jam, graphite, brioche, grilled herbs and spice add nuance on an inky finish that gains weight over time. Today, the 2014 is embryonic, but I won't be surprised if it grows considerably over the coming years. The blend is 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc. Tasted two times.

The Château Léoville-Barton 2014 is a blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc picked between 25 September and 8 October and matured in 60% new oak. This is clearly richer and more opulent than the Langoa Barton with small dark cherries, a touch of boysenberry and cedar, more immediate than its “little sister”. The palate is sweet and sappy in the mouth with concentrated black fruit, hints of liquorice coming through on the finish that fans out with a bit of brio. It does not quite possess the clinical precision of Léoville Las-Cases, but there is certainly a lot of substance and length here. Lilian Barton can rightly be proud of this. Tasted on three occasions. eRobertParker.com.April, 2015

A very fine and linear Barton with bright raspberries and cherries. Full body, ultra fine tannins and a long, beautiful finish. Sleek and racy.

Mouthfilling from the start, with lovely plum sauce, steeped fig and blackberry coulis flavors, lined with warm ganache notes and carried by ample but polished tannins. Features a tarry edge at the end, but maintains a rather polished feel overall. A lovely wine, once again.—J.M Wine Spectator, April 2015.

More lift and direction to this than the Langoa, though as always a little harder to penetrate. Some fruit, and some depth. A core of northern St Julien fruit. This follows in the mouth, where the breeding is clear. Plenty of weight. Broad, and very Leoville-Barton. Very good. Proper wine. Joss Fowler, FINE+RARE, April 2015.
