The 2015 Langoa Barton is fleshy, open-knit and absolutely delicious. Sweet red cherry and pomegranate are pushed forward, while hints of violet, lavender and spice add freshness and lift to the succulent finish. The gracious, feminine side of Saint-Julien comes through in spades. This is very nicely done. Tasted two times. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

The 2015 Langoa Barton is a blend of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc picked between 19 September and 5 October, matured in 60% new oak. It has a slightly smudged bouquet at first, a mixture of red and black fruit, a little sous-bois and tobacco developing in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with gently grippy tannin, veering more towards red fruit here, but laced with tobacco and cedar notes. The finish is austere and perhaps mean at the moment, so hopefully it will develop more flesh by the time of bottling. I must confess that I cannot remember tasting Langoa next to Léoville Barton at this stage and finding such a disparity between the two wines, attested by tasting the 2014s just afterwards and finding them closer together in terms of quality.

Very ripe and fruit with lots of mature berry and plum character. Full body, round tannins and a savory finish. Juicy. Mar 2016, www.JamesSuckling.com

Very fresh, with a sleek frame around bright red currant and plum notes. Shows really good cut through the finish. Mar 2016, James Molesworth, www.WineSpectator.com

Almost timid on the nose, this wine is so polite. After you … Quite a bit of acidity compared with some. Very straight-backed rather than full of pleasure. Just depends on your preferred style - but this certainly builds towards an impressive finish. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2027-2042

Fine fragrance and fruit: shows the purity and depth of a classic vineyard with nothing exaggerated. Discreet but full of character; in perfect balance. Apr 2016, Steven Spurrier, www.Decanter.com, Drink: 2022-2035

Both the Barton wines are impressive in 2015, with this one just the lighter of the two. It’s still got plenty of structure and oak, but the elegance of the patrician Cabernet is very pure and transparent here. Apr 2016, www.timatkin.com, Drink: 2022-2030
