TASTING NOTES
"Plenty of juicy blackcurrant fruit and background oak are present in this plump, medium to full-bodied, ripe, well-made wine. Not nearly as tannic as I feared, this wine shows a forward plumpness, excellent purity, texture and length. Drink it over the next 15-20 years." - Robert Parker Jr., The Wine Advocate 

Langoa-Barton is always one of the first names on our buying list for any new Bordeaux vintage. The consistently sensible pricing and excellent quality from Anthony Barton and his daughter Lillian make it one of the must-haves in Bordeaux. Their 2006 is more masculine than usual, with bags of restrained dark fruit combined with firm tannins, a powerful structure, and a lively mineral-laden finish. This will definitely be a Langoa for the long term.
Simon Staples, BBR Fine Wine Director,

This wine are fleshy and balanced with a superb velvety smoothness on the palate. They develop ripe fruit aromas and have serious cellaring potential.

PRODUCER
As a result of the ownership by the Barton family, Leoville Barton and Langoa Barton are forever intertwined.  They even share the same facility where the vinification of these two famed wines take place, only to yield distinctly different wines. 

Hugh Barton was a descendant of an Irish family which settled in Bordeaux in the 18th century and which has a long and distinguished history in the region’s wine trade. Both properties are still family-owned and run and together represent the longest tradition of unchanged ownership in the Médoc. Anthony Barton is the current proprietor but is gradually passing the reins to his daughter Lillian.
Both Langoa and Léoville wines are models of typical St Julien restraint and elegance, and Anthony’s fair pricing policy, always with an eye to the long term , has won him many loyal friends amongst his customers. For years, Langoa Barton was considered slightly lighter and more forward than Léoville. However, in the last decade it has become noticeably deeper in colour and richer and more concentrated on the palate. Langoa Barton is now often the equal of Léoville.

VINEYARD
• Domaine: Château Langoa Barton
• A.O.C.: Saint-Julien
• Classification: Third Growth, 3ème Grand Cru Classé in 1855

Langoa Barton has 20 hectares of vineyards (Cabernet Sauvignon 71%, Merlot 21%, Cabernet Franc 8%) lie on gravelly-clay soils. Vinification includes 18 months' maturation in oak barriques (50% new). Langoa Barton is vinified and matured in exactly the same way as Léoville-Barton and any difference between them must be put down to variations in the soils and exposure of their respective vineyard blocks.

WINERY / WINE MAKING 
The harvesting is done entirely by hand. After the de-stemming, the berries are carefully sorted, crushed and poured in wooden thermo-regulated vats, according to their plots. The alcoholic fermentation lasts from 7 to 10 days and the extraction is always respectful of the juice by the setting of pumping depending on the cuvées and the vintages. The maceration is about 3 weeks then the juice is drawn in barrels, lot by lot. The wine is then aged between 16 and 18 months in 15 years. The wines are topped up 3 times a week to avoid any contact between the wine and the air, the racking is traditional using the so-called "dodge" method.
