Chateau Langoa Barton 2005 Saint-Julien 75cl / 13%
A bottle of Château Langoa Barton 2005, a 'Troisième Cru Classé' from Bordeaux's Saint-Julien appellation. Langoa is a 17 hectare property planted with a high percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon, 72%, making for a long-lived wine, with the balance being 20% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc.
'The Château Langoa Barton 2005 offers plenty of concentration on the nose: blackberries, blueberry, a touch of cedar and tobacco emerging from the glass, opening and gaining intensity all the time. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin. This is beautifully balanced in the mouth, perhaps just a little conservative but with great precision and length. It has the freshness and vitality to be approachable now, though I would prefer to leave this for another 4 or 5 years. Drink 2020-2045. 93+/100' Neal Martin, RobertParker.com, 2015
