2017 Langoa-Barton, St-Julien

SKU #1492156 94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This wine, from the stablemate of Léoville-Barton, offers great fruit: blackberry flavors and structured black currants. With its tannins, spice and good acidity, the wine has a good future. (RV) Inner quote mark (3/2020)

93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Lots of crushed blackcurrants and chocolate on the nose, following through to a medium to full body with soft, friendly tannins that are caressing and beautiful. Drinkable now, but better after 2022. Inner quote mark (12/2019)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2017 Langoa Barton is medium to deep garnet-purple colored and features wonderfully pure scents of crushed blackcurrants, wild blueberries and black raspberries plus wafts of underbrush, dark chocolate and violets. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is laden with seductive black and blue fruits, framed by grainy tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long and perfumed. (LPB) Inner quote mark (3/2020)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2017 Langoa-Barton has a wonderful bouquet with blackberry, briary, potpourri and light violet scents that are extremely well integrated with the 60% new oak. Nothing pretentious, nothing extravagant. The palate is medium-bodied with very supple tannin, one of the most pliable Langoa’s that I can recall with plenty of black cherry and cassis fruit on the structured finish. This is a great Langoa-Barton that comes highly recommended. (NM) Inner quote mark (2/2020)

92 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Langoa shows the same delicacy and finesse as many St-Juliens in the 2017 vintage, but without the downside of slightly under ripe fruit. There are still earthy notes, and this is a not a gourmet take on the vintage (unlike its sibling Léoville Barton, which manages to deliver real flesh), but it has poise, concentration and excellent black fruit character. Should open up in another six to eight years, and deliver for a couple of decades from that point. (JA) Inner quote mark (11/2019)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Ripe, bright and fresh, featuring a terrific beam of cassis and plum fruit running through, flanked by anise and red tea notes and scored by a singed applewood accent on the finish. Needs a little time to unwind fully. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2020)

90-92 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2017 Château Langoa Barton showed beautifully both times I was able to taste it. Black cherries, plums, leafy herbs and spring flowers all emerge from this medium-bodied, ripe, lively Saint-Julien that shows the pretty, charming, elegant style of the vintage. As with all the wines from this vintage, it’s not massive by any means, yet it is nicely concentrated and impeccably balanced. The blend is 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc, with harvest stretching between the 15th and 18th of September for the Merlot and the 22nd to the 29th of September for the Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. It’s still aging in 60% new oak. Inner quote mark (4/2018)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Healthy cherry red. Inviting and elegant dark-fruit aroma with just a light char. Here, after several left-bank wines that lacked enough fruit depth in the middle, is one that has weight and depth on the mid palate that gives a rounded, fresh and complete wine. Succulent, juicy and well-structured for the longer term but still elegant. 17/20 points (JH) Inner quote mark (4/2018)

K&L Notes

93 points Antonio Galloni for Vinous: "The 2017 Langoa Barton is so beautiful, just as it was en primeur. Rich, fleshy and seductive in the glass, the 2017 exudes charm from the very first taste. Succulent red cherry, red plum, mint, tobacco and blood orange all flesh out in this wonderfully inviting, alluring Saint-Julien from the Barton family." (03/2020)
