Anthony Barton's second growth is always a top quality Bordeaux of classic proportions. Structured, Cabernet Sauvignon dominated wines are produced here that are serious, controlled and pure. The 50 hectare vineyard is planted 74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc. Always the epitome of Saint Julien and the ultimate "Englishman's Claret". The Barton family traditions continue with Lilian at the helm and her son Damian now taking an active role too. Deep in colour, with a dense and brooding nose of incense, truffles and ripe blackcurrant. The palate is concentrated and intense, both in the powerful black fruit at the core and the polished but chalky, chewy tannic structure. Layers of cedar, vanilla and toast add to the complexity, bringing sweet and savoury and integrating into the fruit. The finish is pure and enduring, with all parts in perfect harmony. One to lay down, but this will greatly reward patience.
