Château Langoa Barton has been owned by the Barton family since 1826 alongside Château Leoville Barton. When Anthony Barton took over the domain in the mid 80s the quality of the wine rose and Langoa Barton is now receiving great scores from wine critics.
Aromas of blackberry, tobacco and hints of mint and cedar. Medium to full-bodied with smooth tannins and slightly meaty finish.
The 2009 Langoa-Barton has a gorgeous bouquet with blackberry, bilberry, cedar and light tobacco aromas that blossom from the glass. This feels so composed and pure. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit, fine-grain tannin, beautifully judged acidity and a svelte, languorous finish that fans out with style. What a gorgeous and utterly seductive Saint-Julien. It turns out to be Langoa Barton, a wine that I have rated very highly in the past.- 94 pts Neal Martin, vinous.com
