Lovely Langoa. Soft, supple attack. Nice easy strawberry and gentle plum fruit. Touch of mince-pie. Really attractive and easy style. Good rounded tannins and a lick of acidity give a more serious finish. Lovely for drinking - but perhaps bring out the Léoville for the in-laws. 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc. Rating: 93 L&S (Apr 2015)

The 2014 Langoa Barton has an earthy, slightly dour bouquet compared to its peers, missing the same degree of vigour. The palate is medium-bodied with gentle tannin, a little soft around the edges compared to the Gloria, easygoing by comparison with a light mintiness coming through towards the finish. This is a lovely Langoa Barton even if it jus falls short of my expectations after bottling. Tasted blind at the annual Southwold tasting.

Berries and rather simple, brutal fruit. Very youthful indeed. Not a charmer! But it’s back-end loaded so it may well shine eventually. Absolutely not communicating at the moment… Lots of weight and concentration. One of the most backward wines we have tasted so far. Massive in every way.

This has a well-built core of cassis, blueberry and plum sauce flavors, coated with a ganache edge and kept honest by a graphite accent through the finish. Dense but plush, showing admirable ripeness for the vintage. Drinking range: 2020 - 2035 Rating: 93 James Molesworth, The Wine Spectator(Jan 2017)
Château Langoa Barton
Hugh Barton acquired the estate of Château Pontet-Langlois (and re-named it Langoa-Barton) in 1821, a few years before he then bought a portion of the estate of the Marquis de Léoville Beauvais, which he renamed Léoville Barton. The Barton's ownership of Langoa is the longest ownership by one family of any estate in the Médoc. There was no château to the Loville portion, and the wines were, and still are, made at Langoa. The Bartons had already been a fixture of the Bordeaux wine trade for a hundred years at this stage - Thomas Barton left his native Ireland in 1722 and settled in Bordeaux, eventually buying Château le Boscq in St Estèphe in 1745. His grandson Hugh, who bought the two Barton estates, developed a wine merchant's business with Daniel Guestier (Barton & Guestier), and the Guestier family proved crucial in protecting the Barton's châteaux during both the French Revolution and World War II when the Bartons had to flee France. Langoa Barton's vineyard classed as a 'Troisieme Cru Classé' in 1855, is quite small for this part of the Médoc with only 17 hectares in production. Planted with mostly Cabernet and Merlot, at 9100 vines per hectare, like Léoville itself. Also like Léoville, it is a terroir of deep gravel over clay. The average vine age is around 35 years.
