La Réserve de Léoville Barton is the second wine of this famous Second Growth St Julien.
Made from the younger vines from this vineyard.
In the glass:  Red fruit with a dark rim around the edge.
On the nose: Sweetish black Cabernet Sauvignon fruit with hints of currants and cherry as they waft around in the glass from this old-world style of wine.
In the mouth: The old-world style flows through to the plate with slightly chewy tannins with a touch of chalkiness about them on the medium well-balanced finish.
The wine is not overly complex however it is very easy to drink and to enjoy.                                                                                                                                                 Making it a bit of a bargain with today’s Bordeaux prices. The wine should age well over the next ten years.

the Rot has set in.

As sacrilegious as this may sound, I am notorious for simple food with great bottles of wine. And this bottle was no exception!
I sat at a park bench and table overlooking Albert Park Lake, eating a famous Andrews Burger with onions and crisp bacon. Sipping on this 2019 Bordeaux truly, some days are just better than others!
