Langoa Barton 2015 Revisited

The 2015 Langoa Barton wine presents a deep, ruby colour with a tight rim. It is fresh, balanced, and clean on the nose, with an intense red fruit bouquet complemented by hints of sous-bois and tobacco. The texture is fleshy and friendly, with a slight spiciness. The tannins are present, but they don't overpower the palate, which is chalky and silky. The finish is long and tense, with the tannins coming through in the medium-bodied palate and the flavours and fruits lingering in the background. The finish is chalky and spicy, resulting from the 54% Cabernet Sauvignon blend, 38% Merlot, and 8% Cabernet Franc, three weeks of ageing, and 60% new oak. Overall, it is a wine that leans towards Pauillac, particularly in the finish, making it a unique and exciting choice for wine enthusiasts.

The 2015 Langoa Barton wine has consistently scored high, from 93 to 94. These scores, a testament to its quality, will resonate with wine enthusiasts and potential buyers alike.

Rated RP93, The 2015 Langoa Barton wine is a testament to the art of winemaking. It boasts a precise, understated, focused bouquet of pure blackberry and wild strawberry fruit with a hint of graphite and crushed stone. As it matures, it becomes more floral, revealing incense and a touch of lavender. The medium-bodied palate offers supple tannin and beautiful, irresistible black fruit. This is a silky-smooth and velvety wine with a sensual and persistent finish. It can be enjoyed now, although its true potential shines with time in a bottle. This is another Saint-Julien that has improved over the last year and was blind-tasted at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting, a testament to its quality and ageing potential. 

JS94. This 2015 is Layered and juicy, with currants, light chocolate, and cedar character. It’s full-bodied, round-textured, and very pretty. It's extremely long and flavorful. It's so friendly and bright. Drink or hold. Edited.

JD94. At seven years old, I was still majoring in primary fruit aromatics. The tannins and structure are precision and silky, which means the black cherry and raspberry fruits remain taut and almost austere at first before deepening out through the mid-palate, gathering together richer nuances of oyster shell, cocoa bean, and espresso. The great texture and depth of expression will benefit from another 3 to 5 years in a bottle—70% new oak. Edited.
