CHÂTEAU LÉOVILLE BARTON
1989 2ème Cru Classé Saint Julien
|Grapes||Cab Sauv, Merlot, Cab Franc|
|Classification||2ème Cru Classé|
In most tastings of the 1989 and 1990 vintages I have had a strong preference for the 1990, but in this tasting the 1989 provided the most charming drinking with its soft, voluptuous texture, big, spicy, cedary nose, sweet, expansive fruit, medium body, and excellent richness and purity. The wine reveals no amber at the edge, but it tastes surprisingly evolved and already delicious. I would not hesitate to drink it over the next 12-15+ years.
