Huge tannic base but the texture smooth and remarkably refined. Zest and force but absolute precision. Lingering and intense, stays on the palate for ever. One of the greats from this estate.

Eventually it reveals crisp black fruit laced with ash and sous-bois scents. The palate is medium-bodied with pastille-like purity on the entry. Fleshier than the aromatics suggest, it is very well balanced with just a dab of sea salt towards the crisp, fresh finish. This will be a delight to drink over the next decade.

It has a deep and quite penetrating bouquet: blackberry, hoisin intermingling with cedar and light pencil shaving scents. It becomes noticeably richer with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins that frame the vivid blackberry and wild strawberry fruit laced with orange sorbet. There is a citric freshness towards the end of this accomplished Clos du Marquis. Excellent. Drinking range: 2024 - 2048 Rating: 93-95 Neal Martin, www.vinous.com(Jun 2020)

This year he is rightfully very pleased with his Grand Vin. It is deeply impressive in 2019. Looking at the analysis and it is the richest and most tannic wine they have ever made, but it sits very naturally, very comfortably. Everything is balanced. Richness and weight. Power and soft fruit - all comes together beautifully in this totally charming, smooth-talking and indulgent wine. Dark and deep. So much intensity but delivered with real grace. 'A wine for all eternity' says Bruno - he is probably right, this is stacked with all it needs for a long life - that's if you can resist drinking it! 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot.L&S(Jun 2020)

Medium to full-bodied, the palate quivers with energetic black fruits, framed by bold freshness and ripe, rounded tannins, finishing on a lingering mineral note.

Some herb notes add another dimension, some violets and some eucalyptus too. A gravelly mineral line adds to the focus and energy. This is proper Bordeaux, not old fashioned - but classically shaped and completely delicious. A lithe tension flatters the fruit and keeps your palate on its toes. Very smart and completely charming but without the sense that this is too manicured or too polished - just very fine indeed. Another winner from Lillian this year.L&S(Jun 2020)

Weight and layers are impressive - but this has great acidity and a drive that pushes on and on. This is another super effort from the Barton stable.

This more serious and more reserved big brother of Chateau Gloria impresses in 2019. There is more Cabernet here (79% Cabernet Sauvignon & 21% Merlot) and Saint Pierre always spends longer in oak than Gloria - always more masculine. 'This will last forever' said Jean-Louis Triaud as we tasted over the air-waves together. It will certainly reward the patient.

More guts and bite here really jump out after the easy and more generous Gloria. Some green leaf and tobacco notes are deliciously classical. Lovely spice. The fruit is darker and more brooding, a more traditional feel , but totally delicious. Cabernet to the fore and it is upright and nicely gnarly. Smart Bordeaux lines with proper grip and tannins and a ripe fruit smudge that leads to the long aromatic finish.
