Thanks in part to the exhaustive efforts of WMG member Mark Golodetz and the generosity of two top St. Julian chateaux, members were treated to several vintages of Chateau Beychevelle and Chateau Leoville Barton.
The vintages started as early as 1986 and up to 2010.
We were lucky to have Philippe Blanc of Chateau Beycheville and Lilian Barton Sartorius of Chateau Leoville Barton as our speakers and suppliers of the wines.
Of course, I liked all the vintages and the styles of both Chateaux. We were also treated to a 1959 Ch Beycheville (thank you Mark Golodetz!!) and a 1986 Ch Leoville Barton. Of the newer vintages, I liked the 2003 and 2005 though the 2010 shows lots of promise.
