Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, 87/100

    We were very pleased how well Langoa 94 is developing. Its aproaching maturity, hasn't got that tell-tale hardness of many of 1994s and has nice fruit. Oct 2002

    Score: 86-87

    An attractive dark ruby/purple color is followed by a tight but sweet nose of cassis fruit, medium body, moderate tannin, good concentration, and a fine finish. Well-balanced, with low acidity and above average extract, this should turn out to be an elegant example of St.-Julien for drinking between 2000-2015.

    Robert Parker, April 1996,
    Score: 84-85

    Langoa's 1994 was revealing the dark side of the vintage - high tannin, a slight compressed and compact personality, and some dilution in the mid-palate. Although the wine possesses fine color and good spice, it appeared to be missing a few component parts.All of the wines in this segment were tasted between March 19 and March 28 in Bordeaux. Most of the important wines from both the 1994 and 1995 vintages were tasted three separate times during my ten-day stay in Bordeaux. Drink: 2000-2015.

    Robert Parker, February 1997,
    Score: 86

    Dark ruby-colored, with an unexpressive nose, this wine may turn out too austere and severe. It exhibits good power and fruit extraction, but the astringent tannin may cause the fruit to dry out before the wine has shed its bitterness. Don't touch a bottle for 5-7 years ... and keep your fingers crossed.

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

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.
