The 2009 vintage produced a fantastic campaign, with critics hailing it as perhaps the best ever. The wines are opulent, rich, ripe and round with the Langoa 2009 offering no exception. A very nice wine that is drinking, however it will only get better with age. A wine that offers excellent value for money,  as Langoa Barton always does.

Information About Chateau Langoa Barton

Led by the affable Anthony Barton, Chateau Langoa Barton, 3rd classified growth, is located in the St. Julien region of Bordeaux. The property has been in the possession of the Barton Family since 1821, which at over 190 years is reputedly the longest period of ownership by any one family in the history of Bordeaux classed growths.

Backward, tannic and beefy, this youthful but formidable 2009 Langoa Barton exhibits a dense ruby/purple color as well as lots of damp earth, underbrush and black currant aromas and flavors, medium to full body, lively acids and, not surprisingly, massive tannins (a characteristic of all the Barton wines). The overall impression is somewhat incongruous, having a certain precociousness in the aromatics, but then clamping down on the taster in the mouth. I recommend waiting 5-7 years before opening a bottle. It should drink well over the following 20-25 years.

Super bright purple, inky blackcurrant nose, touch of buscuit and perfume underneath. Punchy cool fruit here very intense and brambley, well endowed with tannin, touch of undergrowth on the finish. A powerful wine, needs a little more charm to be great.

Tasted at the château and the UGC. Cropped between 23rd September and 3rd October, a blend of 34% Merlot, 54% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Cabernet Franc, delivering 13.0% alcohol. A deep purple colour. The bouquet has a great purity and sense of nonchalance to it, light and airy, superb definition with black cherries, a touch of cassis and autumn leaves and then with aeration, hints of oyster shell and cockle shell. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, a gentle but insistent grip, pure black cherries, touches of cassis and boysenberry towards the focused finish. Good length and breeding. Everything in its right place.

Tasted at the Union de Grand Cru in London. Initially, I was just looking for a little more animation and joie-de-vivre on the nose of the Langoa -09, yet undeniably is boasts fine delineation and is very pure. I am sure this will evolve beautifully with time. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins, great purity, very fine cohesion. Indeed, the palate is more vivacious than the nose suggests and though I would like a little more weight on the finish, the bottom line is that it is delicious.
