The Wine Advocate 1976 wine tasting notes
Tasted at the 190th anniversary Léoville Barton lunch, others were more impressed by the 1976 Leoville-Barton than I was. I thought the nose was showing a little cork taint, even so the palate expressed the heat of that torridly hot summer: smudged red fruit, fig and dried prune, though there is decent weight on the fleshy, rather unruly finish. I suspect that it was drinking much better in the 1990s. Tasted November 2016

Bottle size 75cl
