Tasting Note

Wine Enthusiast 95, Roger Voss

Sometimes seen as the junior of the two properties owned by the Barton family in Saint-Julien, this is an impressive estate in its own right, especially in this superripe, smoothly rich wine. Tannins are well wrapped in the generous structure and fruits. Drink from 2025.

The Wine Advocate 90, Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Langoa Barton is scented of cedar and Marmite toast with black fruit and fertile earth notes. The medium-bodied palate is oaky with a good fruit core, fine-grained tannins and nice freshness on the finish.

Drink Date: 2019 - 2033

Winemaking Winery

Langoa Barton St. Julien is awine that over-delivers in the appellation is the 2015 Château Langoa Barton which is largely Cabernet Sauvignon yet includes 38% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc. Brought up in 60% new oak, it boasts a deep purple colour and smokin good notes of caramelized cherries, crème de cassis, toasty oak, and graphite.

Big, full-bodied, concentrated, and structured, with awesome purity of fruit as well as notable elegance, it needs 3 to 4 years of bottle age and will keep for two to three decades.
