Ch. Langoa Barton St. Julien 2000
Bordeaux Red Blends from St-Julien, Bordeaux, France
Number 24 of Wine Spectator's 2003 Top 100!
"A dense and rich red, with aromas of blackberries and blueberries, with an undertone of minerals. Full-bodied, with lots of tannins and loads of structure and length. Just a baby, but already muscular and developed. Best wine from this estate in years. Same owner as Leoville Barton."
"Showing far more impressively from bottle than it ever did from cask, this wine has turned out to be an outstanding Langoa Barton. It reveals a deep, saturated purple color and an expansive, sweet nose of earthy black currants, plum, and melted licorice. Structured, dense, chewy, with full body, good acidity, and plenty of tannin, this is undeniably a wine for patient connoisseurs, or as the French say, a vin de garde. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2035."
The Wine Advocate
"Good ruby-red. Superripe aromas of roasted black raspberry and blackcurrant complicated by roasted nuts, sexy oak spices and game. Juicy, penetrating and vinous, with complex currant, lead pencil and oak flavors. A firm, structured wine with very good backbone and big, cheek-coating tannins."
