Tasting Notes

  • GDH

    Goedhuis, April 2013,
    Score: 88-90

    A bold and full style with striking Cabernet flavours. A concentrated wine, slightly less feminine than some years, with deep, intense tannins. The freshness on the finish provides lift and life to this extremely consistent estate.

    Neal Martin, May 2013,
    Score: 90-92

    The Langoa Barton is a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc picked between 3 and 15 October at 32hl/ha. It has a surprisingly high-toned, quite glossy, exotic bouquet at first, although it appears to “calm down” in the glass to leave plenty of ripe red cherry and strawberry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe, supple tannins. This is a generous, confident Langoa Barton, quite feminine (living up to its name) with a lovely ripe, quite sensual finish that exhibits deftly integrated oak. Tasted twice with consistent notes, there is great potential here. Tasted April 2013.

    Robert Parker, April 2013,
    Score: 86-88

    Fruity, short and narrowly constructed, the 2012 Langoa Barton displays a deep ruby/plum/purple color, fresh acids, sweet tannins and less weight, muscle and power than usual. It is a good but uninspiring effort to drink over the next 10-12 years. Drink 2013 - 2025

  • JS

    James Suckling, April 2013,
    Score: 89-90

    A little fluid but some attractive blueberry and currant character. Medium body, fine tannins. Light finish.

  • JR

    Jancis Robinson, April 2013,
    Score: 16.5

    Dark crimson. Edgy, leafy nose with thick appeal though it lacks a bit of really spontaneous freshness. Solid. Drink 2020-2032

    Wine Spectator, April 2013,
    Score: 87-90

    Soft at the core, featuring gentle plum and cherry pie notes, with dusty tannins and powdered vanilla accents on the finish. —J.M.

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.
