Estate Notes

Château Langoa Barton 2010 is a great buy from the consistently brilliant Barton family and the excellent Bordeaux vintage - which produced small, concentrated grapes, with thick skins rich in tannin, sugar, alcohol and acidity - all in great balance. Langoa Barton 2010 was purchased in original wooden cases.

Château Langoa Barton is the stablemate of Léoville Barton and always the subject of comparison but they are definitely two different estates. Langoa invariably shows perhaps a more feminine and accessible side with Leoville being more muscular. In modern times the Château has been remarkably consistent and represents great value.

Reviews

"...the 2010 Langoa Barton has the typical structured, dense style, but just as I thought earlier on, it is a much softer and more developed wine than one ordinarily expects from proprietor Anthony Barton. It is full-bodied and impressively endowed with subtle oak, rich cassis fruit and notes of new saddle leather, forest floor, cedar wood and spice box. Full, authoritative and dense." eRobertParker.com

"Tightly focused, with a beam of cassis and blackberry fruit framed by integrated espresso and charcoal notes. The ample structure drives the polished finish, allowing extra notes of plum sauce, pastis and blueberry coulis to stride through. Shows serious grip at the very end." Wine Spectator
