Chateau Leoville Barton 2eme GCC Saint Julien 2006

The stunningly complex and perfumed nose has a aromas of pure berry fruit, mocha, spice and reviving minerality, combined with the richness evident in the Langoa. The palate is at the same time exuberantly rich and enticing as well as being delicate and fresh with an astoundingly long length. Pairs well with roast poultry, lamb, beef, pork, fish and cheeses.

The harvesting is done entirely by hand. After the destemming, the berries are carefully sorted, crushed and poured in wooden vats thermo-regulated, according to their plots. The alcoholic fermentation lasts from 7 to 10 days and the extraction is always respectful of the juice by adjusting the number of pumping depending on the cuvées and the vintages. The maceration is about 3 weeks then the juice is drawn in barrels, lot by lot. The wine is then aged between 16 and 18 months in French oak barrels of which 60% are brand new, in a cellar maintained at 15 °. The wines are topped up 3 times a week to avoid any contact between the wine and the air, the racking is traditional using the so-called "à l'esquive" method
