CHÂTEAU LÉOVILLE-BARTON The Barton Family, one of the oldest and most distinguished of the ex-patriot merchants and Château proprietors of Bordeaux, hail from Ireland, the first Barton arriving in Bordeaux in 1725. The large Léoville domaine was sequestered at the time of the French revolution and one quarter of the vineyard was purchased by Hugh Barton who, in 1821, purchased the neighbouring Château and vineyard of Langoa, where the family still lives. Château Léoville-Barton--Vintage 1961 Saint-Julien, 2me cru classé Levels: three top, four upper/top and one upper shoulder; three depressed corks, lightly bin soiled labels "Several tastings in the early eighties must have been from less-than-perfect bottles because I was never excited by this wine. Tastings in the late eighties and nineties revealed a terrific, fully mature wine, splendidly perfumed with cedar, herbs, and sweet black fruits, rich, full-bodied, and long. Based on the best bottles, this wine is fully mature, but is capable of lasting for another decade. Anticipated maturity: now-2000. Last tasted 9/97." Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book, 3rd Edition (1998) 8 bottles per lot
