Chateau Langoa Barton 2001, St. Julien

Vinmøte Are 16.2.12:

Rett fra kjeller`n etter forrige korket vin. Klassisk mørk bordeaux, tydelig vestside med god typisitet, sedertre og myk. Men litt lite trøkk. Som er litt typisk Langoa synes jeg. 86 poeng.

Diverse vurderinger av denne vinen;

Tobacco, spice box, cedar, and black currants offer a perfumed, complex introduction to this structured, beefy, muscular St.-Julien. As usual, a battle between the fruit and structure is being waged in this 2001, which appears to be a bit broader and more charming than most young Langoa Bartons. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2016.

A dense, burly, tannic offering, with a ruby/purple color, and plenty of composty, earthy, black currants, cedar, and licorice notes, this wine will require significant patience given the exaggerated tannins it seems to possess. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2022.
Score: 87-88Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (146), April 2003

Tasted at the Langoa-Barton vertical in London. A deep garnet colour. The nose is very expressive, but less opulent that a couple of years ago, with an herbaceous element that is endearing. With time in the glass, aromas of smoke, bacon fat, iodine, a hit of soy lacing introspective dark fruits. The palate is medium-bodied with very good acidity, lovely balance and freshness, silky tannins, very harmonious with a smooth glide of a finish. Black cherries, a touch of plum, just a hint of volatility giving it lift. Lovely if just a little foursquare. Drink 2010-2020. Tasted April 2009.

Terrific aromas to this wine, with violets, spices, cinnamon and berries. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a lovely ripe fruit and vanilla aftertaste. Very integrated and refined. Shows class. Langoa is very underrated. Another winner from the Barton family. Best after 2008.

Very bright and very slightly raw. Cassis. Very unformed. Dry finish. Slightly grating. Date tasted 23rd Jan 08.

Léoville Barton’s sister Chateau remains very fairly priced for the consistent quality. Creamy new oak on the nose. This has a very silky, smooth mouth-feel that is soft and supple. Warm and attractive it is less “serious” than Léoville but very good.
