The 2017 Langoa-Barton has a wonderful bouquet with blackberry, briary, potpourri and light violet scents that are extremely well integrated with the 60% new oak. Nothing pretentious, nothing extravagant. The palate is medium-bodied with very supple tannin, one of the most pliable Langoa’s that I can recall with plenty of black cherry and cassis fruit on the structured finish. This is a great Langoa-Barton that comes highly recommended. (Neal Martin, Vinous, February 2020)

Langoa Barton was bought by Hugh Barton in 1821. This was some 30 years before the classification of 1855 and Hugh was not to know that Langoa would be classified as a 3rd growth. A blend of 54% Cab Sauv, 38% Merlot & 8% Cab Franc, & 60% new oak. Vivid deep red with aromas of juicy red sweet berry fruits, tobacco and floral notes. On the palate cherry & plum with licorice, cacao and earthy oak. Fine tannins, lingering soft ending. Drinks well now!

Beautifully polished and linear. Mouthwatering acidity and fresh red flavors of red currant and dew drops. While not the most pedigreed vintage, absolutely delightful to enjoy today. #sommcon

The 78 was great at Christmas dinner with Prime Rib. The 81 out of magnum is equally up to the task with the filet. Boo yah! Forget about it!

Not much fruit. Forest floor, mushroom, graphite, bell pepper and dried herb. Tannins are still grippy, slight green on the palate, lean and hollow on mid-palate. Long, bitter finish.
