Langoa Barton 2004 0,75
Another sleeper of the vintage from this somewhat under the radar step-child of Anthony Barton’s more famous Leoville Barton, the 2004 Langoa Barton exhibits deep, concentrated, chunky, black currant and cherry fruit intermixed with notions of forest floor and aged beef blood. This impressive, full-bodied, powerful, ageworthy St.-Julien is atypically backward and brooding. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2025+.
Langoa Barton 2007 0,75
Good deep ruby-red. Aromas of redcurrant, tobacco leaf, licorice and cigar box, with herbal and peppery nuances emerging with air. Juicy and penetrating, displaying very good cut to its currant and herb fla vors. In the often leanish style of 2007 but juicy and nicely intense.
