I absolutely loved the 2015 Léoville-Barton and this has everything you could want from a Left Bank Bordeaux. Cassis, smoked earth, graphite, tobacco leaf, and thrilling amounts of minerality all emerge from this inky colored, full-bodied, power-packed, brut of a Saint-Julien that holds everything together and stays pure, balanced and elegant on the palate. It has a lot of tannins, yet more than enough fruit. The 2015 is a blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Merlot, brought up in 60% new French oak, and it needs 7-8 years of bottle age and will shine for 2-3 decades. Bravo! - Jeb Dunnuck

A dense, powerful wine, the 2015 Léoville-Barton is going to need quite a bit of time to come together, as it is massively tannic and structured at this stage. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

This is a very focused Barton with ultra-fine tannins that are so polished and chalky. It drives through the center palate with currant and berry character. Full-bodied, polished and straightforward with driving tannin. Love the texture. Class. Yes. Drink in 2021. - James Suckling

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Leoville Barton offers up notions of warm red currants, black raspberries and dark chocolate with wafts of cigar box, violets and bay leaves. Elegant, medium-bodied and sporting great freshness, the taut, tightly wound palate of intense red fruits and floral accents is well-framed with firm, grainy tannins, finishing on a lingering mineral note. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate

This delivers some serious wow, dripping with warm fig, blackberry and boysenberry reduction notes, along with melted black licorice and fruitcake flavors. Shows ample grip but remains beautifully polished, letting the fruit sail on. Don't worry though, as long echoes of roasted apple wood and tar signal that this is built for the long haul. Best from 2025 through 2042. 11,667 cases made. - James Molesworth, Wine Spectator
 
The 2015 Leoville Barton is less expressive than the Langoa Barton at the moment, although there is more complexity locked up here. Black fruit, briary, crushed stone and a touch of violet all vie for attention. The palate is fresh and vibrant, nicely structured albeit without the depth and volume that I think the 2016 will bring. I would prefer a touch more persistence but otherwise this is a finely made, stylish Leoville Barton (as usual). Anticipated maturity: 2021 - 2045.  - Neal Martin
 
One of the deepest, richest and darkest of the St-Juliens in 2015, showing a lick of tar and a crack of cassis. Confident and settling in for the long haul, a salty minerality kicks in on the finish to give a mouthwatering quality. 60% new oak barrels. Eric Boissenot consults. - Decanter
 
Deep crimson. Fresh and zesty. Much more lifted than its Langoa stablemate. Really rather glorious actually. Very fresh but with slaty undertow. Now this is a 'mineral' wine! - Jancis Robinson
 
Dark rich fruit and plenty of structure. A rustic quality with that brambly fruit quality that usually exists in Barton. Lots of grip and tannin on the back end. Good length. A very nice Barton. GVWM
