Tasting Notes

Goedhuis, April 2018, Score: 92-94

54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc, this is a classical blend for the estate. The sister property to Ch Léoville Barton is another success in 2017. At a moderate 13% abv there is a density to the dark fruit with hints of dark soaked raisins and notes of toasty spice. The tannins are robust but not overpowering. This is another terrific Langoa Barton.

Producer

Château Langoa Barton

This château is owned by the Barton family (with Léoville Barton). Serving as a home and a winecellar, Langoa took its name from "gué" an old French word for the small stream that flows at thesouthern end of the property. Unlike the classical style of its stable mate, Langoa tends to be more approachable and flattering at a young age with fleshy fruit and textured tannins.

Region

St Julien, Red Bordeaux

St Julien is like the middle child of the Médoc - not as assertive as Pauillac or as coquettish as Margaux. It lies firmly between the two more outspoken communes and as a result produces a blend of them both. St Julien's wines have often been sought out by aficionados for their balance and consistency, particularly in the UK. Yet due to its middle child nature, it can occasionally be overlooked globally and as a result underrated by those markets outside the UK. Despite the fact that it has no first growths, it has several second growths including Léoville Las Cases, Léoville Barton, Léoville Poyferré and Ducru Beaucaillou as well as the celebrated châteaux such as Talbot and Beychevelle.
