This wine is a joint venture between négociant Schröder & Schÿler and the Barton family of Château Léoville-Barton. It's fruity in style, with light tannins and attractive spice from wood aging. Its black currant fruitiness, typical of the vintage, has softened and filled out so the wine is ready to drink.
