Tasting notes

Robert Parker
Tasted: 01/04/2005
Drink: 2012-2022


The saturated ruby/plum-tinged 2002 reveals a tight but promising nose of underbrush, new saddle leather, damp earth, black currants and cherries. It is a strongly structured, potent effort with medium to full body, and impressive purity, but loads of tannin presented in a frightfully backward style. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022. I seem to consistently underrate this wine when it is young.

Drink: 2005-2018


This is not the typical, tannic, macho style expected from proprietor Anthony Barton. The 2002 Langoa Barton reveals a surprising suppleness, with soft, ripe, black currant, and new saddle leather aromas, as well as a nicely textured, medium-bodied, spicy personality. It requires 2-3 years of cellaring, and should drink well for 15+ years.
