This has a strapping, still-youthful core of blackberry, boysenberry and fig confiture flavors, wonderfully studded with ganache and sweet tobacco accents. The finish is loaded with seamless tannins that let the fruit notes play out. More fruit-driven overall, and there's nothing wrong with that. Drink now through 2028. (JM, Web-2016)
Showing far more impressively from bottle than it ever did from cask, this wine has turned out to be an outstanding Langoa Barton. It reveals a deep, saturated purple color and an expansive, sweet nose of earthy black currants, plum, and melted licorice. Structured, dense, chewy, with full body, good acidity, and plenty of tannin, this is undeniably a wine for patient connoisseurs, or as the French say, a vin de garde. (RP)
Good ruby-red. Superripe aromas of roasted black raspberry and blackcurrant complicated by roasted nuts, sexy oak spices and game. Juicy, penetrating and vinous, with complex currant, lead pencil and oak flavors. A firm, structured wine with very good backbone and big, cheek-coating tannins. (ST)
The junior of the two wines produced by the Barton family, this is a subtle, classic wine. Structure and firm tannins sit alongside the perfectly formed, under-stated red and black fruits.
Mid to deep crimson with a hint of blue, still. High toned, scented but obviously very dry. No-compromises bordeaux. This is not trying to get a score. This is just how it came out that year. Bone dry and still work in progress with quite marked tannins still.
