Chateau Langoa Barton Cellar

Offer published: 23/07/2021

 "The common consensus is that Léoville Barton is by rote, superior to Langoa, but the more my experience grows, the less I think that is valid…  
I have become more and more convinced that Langoa is just as good, occasionally even better than its sibling. I cannot think of any [other] Left Bank wine that not only represents great value but comes with such a propensity to age so gracefully.
Neal Martin.

Chateau Langoa Barton 2011Magnums

£375 per 6 IB. (2 Cases)

90 pts Ian d'Agata, Vinous.com
Good full ruby-red. Perfumed aromas of blackcurrant, fresh herbs and cocoa. Sweet, round and nicely vinous, with good depth to the flavors of chocolatey dark fruits and spicy underbrush. Finishes with fine-grained tannins, firm structure and lingering cocoa and floral notes. Offers plenty of early appeal and better texture than many 2011s.

Richer and more overtly woody than the Léoville Barton. Greater refreshment and length too – really smart and flavoursome. (RH)

The 2012 Langoa-Barton is fleshy and supple, with lovely aromatic top notes that give the wine much of its inviting personality. Sweet red cherries, herbs, mint and white pepper are laced together in a delicate, nuanced wine that is ready to drink now.

Dark crimson. Some notes of coffee and chocolate-covered cherries – both fruit and oak sweetness. Finely balanced on the palate, the fruit fully ripe but still fresh, the tannins and acidity framing the whole. Very satisfying. (JH)

£325 per 12 IB. (6 Cases)

88 pts Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate
Drinking Window 2018 - 2030
The 2013 Langoa Barton has a perfumed bouquet, touches of Asian spice and cedar infusing the black fruit, a touch of cold stone surfacing with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp, minerally red berry fruit, fine tension here with a simple, nicely balanced, fresh cedary finish. It could be described as a "workman-like" Langoa, but in a positive sense of the word. It does its job.

17+/20 Richard Hemming MW, JancisRobinson.com
Drinking Window 2018 - 2028
Smoky, flinty character to the nose. Elegant aromatic quality – plenty of perfume. Pretty firm build, with a long, grippy persistence. Lots to enjoy here. (RH)

What a nice surprise the 2015 Langoa-Barton is. Racy, silky and forward, the 2015 will drink well with minimal cellaring. Succulent red cherry and pomegranate fruit are nicely lifted by floral and spice notes that add aromatic intensity and layers of flavor. Silky tannins add to the wine's considerable immediacy and sheer appeal.

Tasted blind. Glowing deep crimson. Very lifted nose. Just a hint of coconut-oil oak but everything else is very exciting. Round, with the (substantial, ripe) tannins well covered. Real energy here. Interesting vegy aftertaste.

The 2016 Langoa Barton is succulent, racy and inviting, with striking textural richness and depth. Ripe dark plum, tobacco, cedar, licorice and spice are all generous in this racy, pliant Saint-Julien. The 2016 is an especially fine edition of Langoa-Barton and one of the sleepers of the vintage.

Tasted blind. Spicy, intense and interesting on the nose. Now this has the class and intensity of a great wine! Polish and salinity too. Pure pleasure. Long and suave. Lots of minerality.


 

 

 

Chateau Langoa Barton 2017

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.

17+/20 Jancis Robinson, JancisRobinson.com
Drinking Window 2024 - 2038
54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc.
Dark crimson that is bluer than most. Rather attractive polish to the tannins and then bone dry on the end. Classic stuff with considerable appeal. No rough edges but no excess sweetness. Succulent and appetising.


 

 

The Barton family are able to trace their Bordeaux roots all the way back to 1722 when Thomas Barton was sent to live in France from his native Ireland. Upon arrival in Bordeaux, Thomas Barton developed an interest in wine and created his first wine merchant company.

His company soon began to flourish thanks to his trade contacts and loyal customers in Ireland. By 1737 he had already made a small fortune and was highly regarded by the Bordeaux locals who nicknamed him ''French Tom''. 

At this time, a law known as the ''Droit d'Aubaine'' stated that all assets belonging to a foreigner who passed away in France would become the property of the French Crown. It is for this reason that Thomas never purchased vineyards in France, instead choosing to invest his profits in Ireland. His grandson, Hugh, was the first member of the family to own vineyards in Bordeaux. 

In 1821, having made a fortune through their wine merchant ventures, the Barton family were able to purchase a Saint Julien estate, Pontet-Langlois. Shortly after the sale, they renamed it to Chateau Langoa Barton.

Following the purchase of Langoa Barton, the family bought a second St. Julien estate from the vineyards of Leoville Las Cases, the estate became Chateau Leoville Barton. Interestingly, because no cellar or wine making facilities came with the purchase, they were forced to make both wines at Langoa Barton.

Chateau Langoa Barton has another unique distinction. Out of all the 1855 Classified Growths, it is one of the few chateau that is still in the hands of the same family that was an owner at the time of the classification. Today, Chateau Langoa Barton is managed by Anthony Barton and Lilian Barton.
