The Chateaux Leoville Barton and Langoa are on the land of the wonderful land designation SAINT JULIAN Vine. Due to its geographical location, climate, all combine to produce exceptional wines both their quality and elegance. The Chateaux Leoville Barton and Langoa have the great privilege to be there in the heart. Langoa Barton almost at the highest level of the crus of the Médoc. Yet Langoa Barton never appears most concentrated, strongest or the most impressive wine: no, Langoa Barton is still one of the most civilized and balanced image of this family straddling two large and ancient cultures.
Aromas of blackberries, dark chocolate and plums. Full-bodied and very velvety, with a gorgeously caressing texture. Long, long finish. A joy to taste. One of the best Langoas ever made.
The 1989 is a medium-bodied, pretty wine, but not as tannic, powerful, and concentrated as other St.-Juliens. The bouquet offers a pleasing tobacco, spice, and currant melange. Well-balanced, with a nice marriage of oak and red fruits, this wine displays surprisingly decent acidity.
