96pts Jeb Dunnuck

Loads of red and black currants, lead pencil shavings, tobacco, and dried flower notes emerge from the 2020 Château Langoa Barton, a gorgeous looking 2020 offering medium to full-bodied richness, ripe tannins, and a great finish. It has the concentrated, backward vibe of the vintage yet brings remarkable opulence and texture. It's impressive.

96pts Wine Enthusiast

One of three properties owned by the Barton family, this has become an estate with a great personality, no longer in the shadow of Léoville-Barton. This latest vintage shows both great structure and layers of black fruits. It has a perfumed style that brings complex ripeness and, obviously, a fine potential.

95pts Robert Parker Wine Advocate 

Sporting a deep purple-black color, the 2020 Langoa Barton needs a little swirling to unlock youthfully muted scents of warm cassis, black cherry preserves and boysenberries, plus hints of menthol, graphite, tilled soil and bouquet garni. The medium-bodied palate is delicately played with impressive freshness delivered by the red berry and herbal sparks within a black-fruit core, with grainy tannins to support, finishing long and invigorating.

94 pts James Suckling

Very pretty blackberry and blueberry character with blackcurrants and mint. It’s medium-to full-bodied with linear, tight tannins that are polished and fine.

92pts Decanter

Not quite as generous as Léoville Barton, replaced with classicism and subdued tannins, as we see the impact of a slightly cooler terroir. Juicy finish, black fruits, plenty of life and lift through the palate. Enjoyable, but closed in with clove spice that is very clear on the finish.

92pts Vinous

The 2020 Langoa Barton is an absolute delight. It offers the radiance of the year but in the mid-weight, understated style that is such a Langoa signature. Bright red cherry fruit, blood orange, mint, rose petal and cedar give the 2020 a whole range of bright aromas and flavors that bristle with energy. This is such a pretty wine.

Winemaker Notes

The nectar shows firstly its dense and intense purple color. Then it reveals a dazzling nose of black fruits and black cherry with minty and spicy notes. The palate is powerful, structured and reveals the great precision of the tannins. The suppleness and roundness of the wine stretch the endless tasting.

Blend: 53.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot, 8.5% Cabernet Franc
