2020 Langoa-Barton, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1539540 94-96 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Loads of red and black currants, lead pencil shavings, tobacco, and dried flower notes emerge from the 2020 Château Langoa Barton, a gorgeous looking 2020 offering medium to full-bodied richness, ripe tannins, and a great finish. It has the concentrated, backward vibe of the vintage yet brings remarkable opulence and texture. It's impressive. Inner quote mark (5/2021)

95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark One of three properties owned by the Barton family, this has become an estate with a great personality, no longer in the shadow of Léoville-Barton. This latest vintage shows both great structure and layers of black fruits. It has a perfumed style that brings complex ripeness and, obviously, a fine potential. (RV) Inner quote mark

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Sporting a deep purple-black color, the 2020 Langoa Barton needs a little swirling to unlock youthfully muted scents of warm cassis, black cherry preserves and boysenberries, plus hints of menthol, graphite, tilled soil and bouquet garni. The medium-bodied palate is delicately played with impressive freshness delivered by the red berry and herbal sparks within a black-fruit core, with grainy tannins to support, finishing long and invigorating. (LPB) Inner quote mark (5/2021)

93-94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Very pretty blackberry and blueberry character with blackcurrants and mint. It’s medium-to full-bodied with linear, tight tannins that are polished and fine. Inner quote mark (5/2021)

92 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Not quite as generous as Léoville Barton, replaced with classicism and subdued tannins, as we see the impact of a slightly cooler terroir. Juicy finish, black fruits, plenty of life and lift through the palate. Enjoyable, but closed in with clove spice that is very clear on the finish. (JA) Inner quote mark (4/2021)

90-92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2020 Langoa Barton is an absolute delight. It offers the radiance of the year but in the mid-weight, understated style that is such a Langoa signature. Bright red cherry fruit, blood orange, mint, rose petal and cedar give the 2020 a whole range of bright aromas and flavors that bristle with energy. This is such a pretty wine. (AG) Inner quote mark (6/2021)

What a delightful wine with super Asian spice aromas and some cherry cola on the palate. Finely balanced and fruit covering the tannins. More black fruit flavors than red fruits.
Drink from 2025 to 2040
