  • Goedhuis, April 2009, Score: 88-90

    A more masculine Langoa which is more reminiscent of Léoville than the typically rounder Langoa. Powerful with notes of roasted spice, morello cherry and pencil lead, this wine is deep and will need several years of cellaring before it shows its true potential.

  • Neal Martin, February 2018, Score: 88

    The 2008 Langoa Barton has a clean and pure, surprisingly heady bouquet with hints of blueberry and cassis coming through with time. The palate is medium-bodied with sweet cassis and black cherry fruit, an opulent and quite sexy Langoa that maybe lacks the terroir expression and classicism you would have expected. Enjoyable if not cerebral. (Tasted at BI Wine Spirit’s annual 10-Year On tasting.)

  • Robert Parker, May 2011, Score: 90

    This potential sleeper of the vintage has come around nicely now that it is in bottle. Elegant yet substantial, it exhibits a dense purple color as well as a sweet bouquet of black currants, cassis, cedarwood, herbs, toast and loamy soil undertones. Medium to full-bodied with sweet tannin (a component that was not evident from barrel), it should drink nicely for 15 or more years. Drink: 2011 - 2026

  • Robert Parker, April 2009, Score: 88-90

    Impressively big, muscular, and formidably backward, this dense, full-bodied 2008 possesses beautiful fruit, but extremely high tannins as well as a blockbuster style that is difficult to fully appraise. It will require at least 6-8 years of bottle age, and should last for three decades. It will probably be at least 2-3 points better than my conservative score suggests. Drink: 2015 - 2045

  • Jancis Robinson

    Dark and concentrated. Wild flowers and dark and dangerous aromas. Sweet foxglove start - definitely floral - and then slightly hollow. Drying finish. Not quite complete, though competent enough. Very dry finish but lots of personality.

  • Wine Spectator, April 2009, Score: 89-92

    Bright blackberry and currant aromas, with flowers. Cool and fresh on the nose. Full-bodied, with fine tannins and juicy fruit.

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.
