    Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
    Château Langoa Barton, 3ème Cru Classé, St Julien, 2002

    Yields were 25% lower than 2001 which in turn was smaller than the 2000 vintage, so allocations of this usually reasonably priced cru classé will be less than ever. One of the biggest structured Langoa we have ever tasted, pure blackcurrant and explosive fruit yet firm tannins.

    Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Independent
    Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2020 Langoa Barton comes bounding out of the glass with eager-to-please notes of kirsch, juicy blueberries, and cassis, plus wafts of fallen leaves, underbrush, and allspice. The medium-bodied palate is plush and juicy, with open-knit black fruits and plenty of freshness, finishing with a spicy kick. It's fabulously delicious right now, but give it another couple of years to fully integrate and then drink it over the next 20 years+.

    The 2020 Langoa Barton has quite a plush, violet-tinged bouquet, higher-toned than the Léoville Barton, though without the same unerring complexity. This just wants to go out and have fun. The palate has an irresistible rondeur, velvety smooth with black plum, hints of cassis and a sweet and persistent finish. Joyful.

    Château Langoa Barton

    This 3rd growth St Julien estate has been owned by the Barton family for approaching two centuries. It was purchased by Hugh Barton in 1821 and is now managed by Anthony and his daughter, Lilian. Stylistically it is rather less impressive than Leoville Barton, but in recent years it has possessed a bit more punch and longevity. It is a popular Claret in the UK and has a reputation for being well priced.
