2007 CHÂTEAU LANGOA BARTON 3ème Cru Classé Saint Julien Château Leoville & Langoa Barton
||Origin: France, Bordeaux
Lea & Sandeman review
The usual distinctive style, verging into a fruit that is medicinal. Even-textured, lovely grown-up floral and black fruit flavours and fleshy, spicy fruit, good grip and lovely length.
Other reviews and comments
Good deep ruby-red. Aromas of redcurrant, tobacco leaf, licorice and cigar box, with herbal and peppery nuances emerging with air. Juicy and penetrating, displaying very good cut to its currant and herb fla vors. In the often leanish style of 2007 but juicy and nicely intense. Finishes a tad dry.

Very dark crimson. Sweet blackberries on the nose - much riper than most. Very flashy! Tastes like Rolland style even if I can't immediately think of a St-Julien where Rolland consults. Blind, this didn't taste like a wine from the Barton stable to me..., although it was certainly much more luscious than the Léoville Barton. 2011-15

Quite a lot of creamy new oak and a touch of resinous quality. Deep-set, rich black fruit, with Fine, ripe, supple tannin structure. Becomes quite creamy and opulent into a long, pure finish.

Lovely ripe fruit, with blackberry and cherry character and chocolate undertones. Long finish. Soft texture.
James Suckling, The Wine Spectator
The dark-colored 2007 Langoa Barton may be too angular, austere, and excessively extracted. This masculine, hard wine may or may not settle down, but it is not a style of wine that’s conducive to the lightness and charm of a vintage such as 2007. Time will tell. Forget it for 3-4 years, and keep your fingers crossed.
Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
A blend of 77.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and 7.5% Cabernet Franc. This has a ripe blackberry, violet tinged nose that is perhaps lacking the clarity and vigour that it often shows at this stage. A touch of seashells become apparent in the glass. The palate is full-bodied, quite sinewy comparative to other Saint Juliens with good concentration and purity of fruit with no signs of under-ripeness. The Langoa 2007 has a persistent finish with good depth and focus with blackberry and cedar to the fore. Very fine, as usual.
Neal Martin's Wine Journal, erobertparker.com
Fine black-red, precise but ripe blackcurrant fruit with slight cedary elements, elegant and long flavours, no greenness nor hollowness, and very good in the leaner 2007 style. Drink 2013-22.
