  • Robert Parker, April 1998, Score: 85-86

    The 1997 Langoa Barton reveals a poivre vert-scented nose, suggesting there was a slight lack of maturity in the Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine possesses a deep ruby/purple color, as well as some of the vintage's up-front charm and softness, good purity, and a medium-bodied, ripe, rustic finish. It should drink well reasonably early - in 3-4 years - and keep for 10-15. Drink: 2001-2013.

  • Robert Parker, April 1999, Score: 78-81

    The 1997 Langoa Barton did not perform well on several occasions. It is a medium-bodied, diluted, straightforward, simple wine without enough charm or character to merit interest. Anticipated maturity: now-2009.

  • Robert Parker, April 2000, Score: 84

    Not a top-notch effort, Langoa Barton's medium ruby-colored 1997 exhibits sweet, herb-tinged, berry, and currant aromas, spicy, cedary, medium-bodied flavors, low acidity, and a pleasant but undistinguished finish. Drink it over the next 7-8 years. Drink: 2000-2008.

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.
