Already the velvet texture is broadening out to give a wine that shows solid fruits, bright and sweet, never heavy, but with plenty of ripeness and polish. Inside this suave character, there is a core of tight tannins, promising medium-term aging. (RV)
Tasted at BI Wine & Spirits' 10-Years-On tasting, the 2007 Langoa Barton has an attractive bouquet with blackberry, autumn leaves, truffle and salted licorice scents that gain intensity in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with a harmonious entry and a gentle grip in the mouth; it's quite a compact Saint Julien, which suggests that it could be one of the long-term bets. There is just a touch of bitterness on the finish, but otherwise this has good potential. Tasted February 2017. (NM)
Offers sultana and currant, with hints of vanilla. Medium-bodied, with polished, pleasing fine tannins and a medium finish. Needs something more midpalate to be outstanding. Best after 2012. (JS)
