Tasting Notes

Tasted at the Langoa-Barton vertical in London. A marvellous millennial Langoa! It has a very deep garnet core with just the first signs of ageing on the rim. The palate is displaying superb fruit concentration with blackberry, black plum, a touch of cigar box and a hint of roasted herbs. It has lost that Margaux-like, floral bouquet it sported in its youth, but I find it very complex, the kind of wine you do not want to extricate your nose from. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins, real depth of fruit and a sense of femininity that should become more evident with age. Silky smooth in texture, fleshy, very pure towards the finish with black cherries, plum, tobacco and a touch of cassis. Long length - gaining in power. A stupendous Langoa Barton. Kudos Anthony! Drink 2012-2030+ Tasted April 2009.

A great classic, sandalwood, cedar, plenty of firm tannins on display, this is a vintage that can be pretty sombre, and it is still clear that this was a tannic wine in its youth. Raspberry, red cherry, cherry pit, blueberry, just a touch drying on the very finish but overall this is walking the line, with tobacco and saffron, excellent quality and beginning to enter its sweet spot for drinking. 70% new oak for ageing, Michel Raoul technical director, Eric Boissenot consultant.

Showing far more impressively from bottle than it ever did from cask, this wine has turned out to be an outstanding Langoa Barton. It reveals a deep, saturated purple color and an expansive, sweet nose of earthy black currants, plum, and melted licorice. Structured, dense, chewy, with full body, good acidity, and plenty of tannin, this is undeniably a wine for patient connoisseurs, or as the French say, a vin de garde. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2035.
