Tasting Notes

The 2015 Langoa Barton has a precise, understated but focused bouquet of pure blackberry and wild strawberry fruit laced with graphite and crushed stone. It becomes more floral with time, revealing incense and a touch of lavender. The medium-bodied palate offers supple tannin and beautiful, irresistible black fruit. This is silky-smooth and velvety in texture, with a sensual and very persistent finish. You could broach this now, although it deserves time in bottle. Yet another Saint-Julien that has improved over the last year. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting.

Score: 93

Neal Martin, 01 July 2019

The 2014 Mauvesin-Barton has an open and generous, very pure, almost Côte de Beaune-like bouquet with red cherries, wild strawberry and light rose petal aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannin, brisk and breezy, not a deep or grippy Left Bank wine but balanced and fresh, the oak judiciously used towards the easy-going but satisfying finish. Fine. Tasted blind at the annual Southwold tasting.

Neal Martin, Maturity: 2019 - 2028 01 March 2018

Dense ruby/purple, with cassis licorice and forest floors notes in the aromatics, Léoville-Barton’s 2012 is a relatively big, rich, masculine style of wine. This full-bodied wine needs 5-8 years of cellaring and should evolve easily for 25-30 years.

Score: 92
