2001 Langoa-Barton, St-Julien

SKU #1006811 93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2001 Langoa-Barton has a rich bouquet for the vintage. It lacks a bit of purity compared to previous bottles, with earthy and mushroom secondary scents coming through. The palate is sensual and quite plush, soft tannins framing the black cherries, allspice, cedar and mint notes that blossom in the glass. Fully matured and yet showing the substance and freshness to support another 15–20 years of aging, this delicious Langoa is as good as the Léoville-Barton. Utterly divine. (NM) Inner quote mark (9/2021)

92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Although it is relatively soft, this wine still has everything about it. There is ripeness, but it is balanced with fresh acidity still with an aura of youth. In the core, there are solid blackcurrants, structure. It will certainly age, but drink over 10 years. (RV) Inner quote mark (12/2007)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark 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. *Top 100 Wines of 2004* (JS) Inner quote mark (3/2004)

My notes in 2002: "A super buy for drinking in eight years or so. Right there with their 2000. Sweet and lush. Purity of fruit shines through. Anthony Barton [of Léoville-Barton] comes up with another outstanding value."

Here is another wine that is drinking right now. On the nose is cedar, earth, spice and cassis fruit in the background. The dark fruit is more evident on the palate with more earth, mushroom and spice. The texture is soft with polished tannins and just a bit of astringency on the finish.
