Tasting Notes

Terrific aromas to this wine, with violets, spices, cinnamon and berries. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a lovely ripe fruit and vanilla aftertaste. Very integrated and refined. Shows class. Langoa is very underrated. Another winner from the Barton family. Best after 2008.

James Suckling, WineSpectator.com, October 2004

Very bright and very slightly raw. Cassis. Very unformed. Dry finish. Slightly grating. Date tasted 23rd Jan 08.

Tasted at the Langoa-Barton vertical in London. A deep garnet colour. The nose is very expressive, but less opulent that a couple of years ago, with an herbaceous element that is endearing. With time in the glass, aromas of smoke, bacon fat, iodine, a hit of soy lacing introspective dark fruits. The palate is medium-bodied with very good acidity, lovely balance and freshness, silky tannins, very harmonious with a smooth glide of a finish. Black cherries, a touch of plum, just a hint of volatility giving it lift. Lovely if just a little foursquare. Drink 2010-2020. Tasted April 2009.
