    This lovely bright purple coloured Langoa is a wine full of charm and harmony. A very generous feel of sweet cherry fruits, a deliciously giving style which will give huge pleasure to all lovers of fine Claret.

    The Château Langoa Barton 2014 is a blend of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot and 12% Cabernet Franc cropped between 25 September and 8 October and raised in 60% new barrels. It has a backward nose that is tightly buttoned down: hints of blackberry, briary and cedar developing with time. The palate is harmonious with fine tannins, good density here for a Langoa Barton with new oak beautifully interwoven and filling out the finish. This is an impressive Langoa Barton, one of the most under-rated crus in Saint Julien. It's one that will surprise a few people once in bottle

    The 2014 Langoa-Barton is very pretty. Nuanced and precise to the core, the 2014 shows the more refined side of St. Julien. Dark red cherry, plum, spice, mint and lavender caress the palate as the 2014 shows off its hugely appealing, open-knit personality. The flavors are finely-sculpted in a Langoa-Barton that should provide considerable near and medium-term appeal. All the elements are in the right place. A dollop of chalk and white pepper adds aromatic lift on the close. The blend is 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc. Tasted two times.

    A beautiful young wine with raspberries and plums. Full, round and juicy. So much berry character. Round tannins and bright acidity.

    Finely concentrated flavours after a floral, black fruits nose – cassis-driven Cabernet with lots of middle fruit and elegant structure. Very good future as always for Langoa. Drink: 2019-2030

    (54 Cabernet Sauvignon, 34 Merlot, 12 Cabernet Franc) | 13.5% alc. | 60% new oak. Superb, plush, bright and stunningly fruity, this is a seriously great interpretation of the vintage for Langoa. The freshness and tenderness of the fruit is attractive and there is lovely density of fruit from start to finish. A great, sonorous nose runs on and on through the palate to a delicious, savoury, but not dry finish. This will be one of the picks of the vintage from a budget point of view.

    Very dark crimson. Medium-sweet attack on the nose. Luscious fruit and then some inkiness. Relatively juicy rather than tannic though there are lots of tannins too. Solid St-Julien and only very slightly green and astringent. Drink 2024-2038

    Wine Spectator, March 2015,
    Score: 91-94

    Sappy kirsch and blackberry coulis notes form the core, with ample tar, ganache and bramble flavors filling in the finish. Displays lots of chewy grip but has the flesh to match. Rock-solid.

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.
