Green Spot Chateau Leoville Barton
It is the contribution of the French oak which drives the initial aroma adding some crisp woodland notes to the spicy Single Pot Still character. The wine seasoning brings a delicate touch of floral perfume and a hint of ripe berries such as raspberries and strawberries; these are in addition to the orchard fruits typical of Green Spot. The familiar mouth coating effect is a very satisfying balance of oak and spices. Some vanilla sweetness works in harmony with the dry wine infuence, while the fresh orchard fruits and French oak combine effortlessly with barley grains to complete the complexity. The rich French oak character is slow to fade leaving the wine and spices of France and Ireland with the last word.
