Neal Martin

The 2017 Langoa Barton was picked from 15 to 18 September with respect to the Merlot and from 22 to 29 September for the Cabernets, matured in 60% new oak. It has a ripe, brine-tinged bouquet, not complex compared to previous vintages, but pure and developing light smoke and truffle scents with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with quite sharp tannin to create a tensile Langoa-Barton, saline with moderate depth, just a touch of pencil lead that surfaces towards the finish. It is exactly what I expected, which is a good thing given the track record of this Saint-Julien. 90-92 points

Jane Anson

There is no doubt that this offers a good expression of the appellation in the medium to long term, but there`s a slightly wider gap between Léoville and Langoa this year - the first time I`ve felt that in several years, and perhaps a reflection of the slightly cooler terroir here. It`s impressively structured and well held together, with black fruits which aren`t as concentrated as the estate has displayed in the previous two vintages, but it displays an innate St-Julien elegance. 92 points

Julia Harding

Healthy cherry red. Inviting and elegant dark-fruit aroma with just a light char. Here, after several left-bank wines that lacked enough fruit depth in the middle, is one that has weight and depth on the mid palate that gives a rounded, fresh and complete wine. Succulent, juicy and well-structured for the longer term but still elegant. 17 points

Antonio Galloni

The 2017 Langoa Barton is absolutely gorgeous. A wine of unusual depth and richness for the year, Langoa Barton is creamy, pliant and incredibly inviting. Super-ripe red and blue fruits, new leather, and dried flowers fill out the wine`s frame effortlessly. The blend is 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc. In 2017, Langoa Barton is a lovely under the radar gem. Don`t miss it. Tasted two times. 90-93 points
