Tasting Notes

Plenty of juicy blackcurrant fruit and background oak are present in this plump, medium to full-bodied, ripe, well-made wine. Not nearly as tannic as I feared, this wine shows a forward plumpness, excellent purity, texture and length. Drink it over the next 15-20 years.

Score: 90

Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, Maturity: 2015-2035 01 April 2015

Fruity, short and narrowly constructed, the 2012 Langoa Barton displays a deep ruby/plum/purple color, fresh acids, sweet tannins and less weight, muscle and power than usual. It is a good but uninspiring effort to drink over the next 10-12 years.

Score: 86 - 88

Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, Maturity: 2013-2025 26 April 2013

Dark crimson. Edgy, leafy nose with thick appeal though it lacks a bit of really spontaneous freshness. Solid.

Score: 16 - 17

Jancis Robinson MW, Maturity: 2020-2032 23 April 2013

A little fluid but some attractive blueberry and currant character. Medium body, fine tannins. Light finish.

Score: 89 - 90

James Suckling, 21 April 2013

Soft at the core, featuring gentle plum and cherry pie notes, with dusty tannins and powdered vanilla accents on the finish.

Score: 87 - 90
