WINEMAKER NOTES : This vintage is a true celebration of the senses. The composition is rich and complex, with aromatic notes of wild flowers. The body leaves nothing to be desired, revealing a firm structure with tasty, almost mellow tannins and remarkable density. Blend: 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc.

TASTING NOTES : The 2009 Langoa Barton is now absolutely delicious, over-delivering on its early promise. Deep ruby in colour with an effortlessly enticing nose of blackcurrant, menthol, deep cherry and dried leaves, it exudes confidence. The palate follows in the same vein, 2009's solar summer carried effortlessly by the coolness of Cabernet Sauvignon farmed and picked at the right time. Deep, yet bright black fruit drives everything here. There are flecks of dried herbs, cedar and the subtlest sweet spices. Pairing succulence and freshness effortlessly, the balance here is outstanding. Building intensity through to the finish with superbly integrated tannins, you can drink this now, or enjoy it over the next 30 years. A brilliant wine that remains incredible value in a great vintage. 

ROBERT PARKERS' NOTES (91)  The medium to deep garnet colored 2009 Langoa Barton is scented of warm red and black plums, dried mulberries and blackcurrant cordial with touches of dried mint and new leather. Medium to full-bodied with a solid frame of grainy tannins and bold freshness, it has loads of red and black berry preserves layers on the long, savory finish.

ABOUT THE WINERY Chateau Langoa Barton was bought by Hugh Barton in 1821. This was some 30 years before the classification of 1855 and Hugh was not to know that Langoa would be classified as a 3rd growth. It was perhaps the architecture and the beautiful facade that attracted him. Since the property has remained in the family and today the shares are divided between Anthony Barton, his daughter Lilian Barton Sartorius and her two children Melanie and Damien, thus reaching out to the 8th generation. The vineyards are situated at the southern end of the appelation Saint Julien and the style of the wine is best described as typical Saint Julien. This means a wine of great elegance and finesse with subtle flavors.
