Description

Best Buy from Wine Enthusiast

93 points Wine Enthusiast Best Buy - This is a delightful wine with an attractive character that belies that firm structure behind it. It has weight and concentration and firm tannins, while showing the fruity side of the vintage. A wine for pleasure as it ages. Drink from 2016. 

91 Points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar - Deep ruby-purple. Exotic, perfumed aromas of plum, strawberry syrup, Oriental spices and bay leaf are complemented by a hint of camphor. Bright, fresh and smooth, with juicy, very persistent blackberry, raspberry and mineral flavors. I really like this wine's purity and verve; it's a superb Langoa that ought to make exceptionally good near-term drinking.

91 Points Wine Spectator - Showing good definition, this delivers plum pit and bitter cherry hints that weave around the core of red currant and blackberry fruit. Briar-tinged grip holds the finish. Best from 2017 through 2027. 

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - From Anthony Barton’s lesser known estate, the 2011 Langoa Barton offers up lots of dusty, earthy, black cherry notes, moderate tannin, and a serious, masculine style. Nicely concentrated and pure, it behaves more like a Pauillac than a classic St.-Julien. Give this medium-bodied wine 2-4 years of bottle age and drink it over the following 10-15 years.
