  • Goedhuis, January 2008

    Still notably deep in colour, this full-bodied St Julien offers notes of sweet leather, dried cherries and roasted meat. Impressive on the palate, it is remains youthfully fleshy and ripe yet is gently aged and evolved. Finishes on vanilla and dark chocolate. A mouthfilling Classic claret.

  • Neal Martin, September 2021, Score: 93

    The 2001 Langoa-Barton has a rich bouquet for the vintage. It lacks a bit of purity compared to previous bottles, with earthy and mushroom secondary scents coming through. The palate is sensual and quite plush, soft tannins framing the black cherries, allspice, cedar and mint notes that blossom in the glass. Fully matured and yet showing the substance and freshness to support another 15–20 years of aging, this delicious Langoa is as good as the Léoville-Barton. Utterly divine.

  • Robert Parker, June 2004, Score: 88

    Tobacco, spice box, cedar, and black currants offer a perfumed, complex introduction to this structured, beefy, muscular St.-Julien. As usual, a battle between the fruit and structure is being waged in this 2001, which appears to be a bit broader and more charming than most young Langoa Bartons. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2016.

  • Jancis Robinson, April 2002, Score: 17

    Deep, concentrated purple. Savoury, Marmite nose. Very, very chewy and thick. Lively black fruit flavours, but still young. Uncompromising. Drink 2008-2016

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.
