2006 Langoa-Barton, St-Julien

SKU #1046981 91 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Tasted at Bordeaux Index's annual 10-Year On tasting in London. The 2006 Château Langoa Barton has a lifted nose of small dark cherries, blackberry, incense and marmalade - quite showy for Langoa Barton - but there is joie-de-vivre here. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, ripe and demonstrating impressive density plus a firm grip. This really coats the mouth in tannin, although it is still balanced. It just needs another 4-5 years in bottle, the stubborn little lady. (NM) Inner quote mark (5/2016)

91 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Soft and ripe, here is a wine that just enjoys being rich and fruity. Blackberry flavors are followed by sweet black cherries, both contained within an elegant structure of tannins. As usual, this will develop more quickly than its more powerful stablemate, Léoville-Barton. (RV) Inner quote mark (3/2009)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Shows violet and blackberry, with hints of raisin. Full and velvety, with lovely-textured tannins and plenty of ripe fruit on the finish. Balanced and rich. (JS) Inner quote mark (3/2009)

90 points Int'l Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark (70% cabernet sauvignon, 25% merlot and 5% cabernet franc) Good deep red-ruby. Lively aromas of redcurrant, smoke, tobacco and nutty oak. Lush and broad, with a restrained sweetness to its plum and redcurrant flavors. Finishes with serious but ripe tannins. This shows more structure than the lighter 2004 and more vinosity, and perhaps more even ripeness than the chunkier 2005. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2007)

This was a big hit in the Best of Bordeaux tasting in November. Beautiful cassis nose with a bit of cedar. The palate was all cassis and raspberry with polished tannins and a long cassis finish. At this price (only $49.99), this is the perfect case wine for cellaring.

I love this property and this vintage from Langoa. Black cherry aromas and flavor. Much more approachable than Leoville Barton - tons of ripe fruit. Perfect structure and balance - will age well for a long time. Same production as 2005 vintage. Great value. Barrel notes: "At property - some cranberry flavors. Good texture and mouthfeel. Solid wine with rounded tannins. At UGC -quite a bit of cranberry on the nose and palate. Complete wine with sweet fruit flavors and lingering finish. *1/2
