'Sappy and dense, with kirsch, plum reduction, mulled açai berry and warmed fig fruit showing impressive range, while licorice snap, ganache and roasted apple wood notes jostle behind them. Mouthwatering acidity should give this plenty of time to round into form. Best from 2025 through 2040. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.' – James Molesworth, Wine Spectator, 95/100

'The 2016 Langoa Barton is medium to deep garnet-purple colored and opens with cedar, red and black currants, kirsch and menthol with smoked meats. The palate is medium to full-bodied, firm, grainy and packed with youthful, energetic fruit, finishing long and perfumed. Drink 2020-2035.' – Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate, 93/100

'Langoa is vinified and aged in the same way as Léoville Barton, the difference being the terroir and varietal blend – even that is not strikingly different. Vibrant and stylish nose, with blackcurrant, black fruits and liquorice. Juicy and full-bodied, it displays swagger, robust tannins and concentration, but not to excess. Vigorous and long finish. Drinking Window 2023 - 2042.' – Decanter, 93/100

'Big and packed with spice and smokiness, this wine is full of rich black fruits and juicy acidity. Wood aging adds a light touch of toastiness at this stage but will integrate to give a ripe wine ready to drink from 2024.' – Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, 93/100

'Tasted blind. Spicy, intense and interesting on the nose. Now this has the class and intensity of a great wine! Polish and salinity too. Pure pleasure. Long and suave. Lots of minerality.' – Jancis Robinson,, 18.5/20

'The 2016 Langoa-Barton has a minty-fresh bouquet with plenty of black fruit; hints of pencil shavings and loamy elements develop with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, fleshy and generous, but I was expecting more detail and terroir expression to show on the chewy, pastille-like finish. Very fine, although I suspect there will be melioration in bottle. Tasted blind at the Southwold tasting. Drink 2024-2045.' – Neal Martin, Vinous, 91/100

Producer information The Barton Dynasty dates back to 1722 with its founder, Thomas Barton. The Barton family has succeeded 10 generations over 300 years. The three châteaux belonging to the Barton family are Château Langoa Barton, Château Léoville Barton and Château Mauvesin Barton. Because Léoville Barton did not originally have a cellar or wine making facilities, its wine was also produced at Langoa Barton which is why the Langoa Barton Château appears on their label. The Bartons are one of the longest-standing families of winemakers in Bordeaux, given the fact that they have owned Langoa Barton since the 1855 Classification.
