Château Langoa Barton

This 20 hectare estate is the ‘sister’ to Léoville Barton and is also very fairly priced for the consistency of its quality. The grape varieties and wine-making methods are similar to these of Léoville Barton. Wow – what a wine! Aged in 60% new oak, this is another impressive vintage at Langoa.

Tasting Notes

A classic Langoa, this property is no longer in the shadow of the more illustrious Leoville. Deep purple in colour and full of cassis aromas with a smattering of cedar oak. The palate is tight and a little angular at the moment, but will soften with age. Medium to full bodied with ripe cassis, finely integrated tannins and a touch of pencil lead.

Food Matches

We love to drink this wine with a fillet steak and blue cheese sauce.

Vinification

Aged in 60% new oak this is a wine for the long term.
