91-93: The Château Langoa Barton 2014 is cropped between 25 September and 8 October and raised in 60% new barrels. It has a backward nose that is tightly buttoned down: hints of blackberry, briary and cedar developing with time. The palate is harmonious with fine tannins, good density here for a Langoa Barton with new oak beautifully interwoven and filling out the finish. This is an impressive Langoa Barton, one of the most under-rated crus in Saint Julien. It's one that will surprise a few people once in bottle.
93: The Bartons rarely disappoint with their wines, both in terms of quality and price, and this is a a typically concentrated, well structured Langoa. Savoury, graphite-scencted and full of bright cassis and damson fruit, this has the structure to age. (13.5%; 54CS, 34Me, 12CF)
