A terrific new release from Langoa Barton. With 30% reduction in volume on release compared to the 2021 vintage this is going to be in high demand. 2021 marked the first year of the new winery facility at the Barton family’s two estates, so all details were finely tuned ready for the exceptional fruit from the 2022 vintage. The cellar has more than double the number of vats allowing for detailed plot by plot selection. Lisa Perrotti-Brown writes, “this extra level of precision was clear when tasting the 2022 Langoa Barton and Léoville Barton.” In his report, William Kelley calls out the Langoa Barton 2022 as one of his ‘wines to look for’ from the 2022 releases, and we agree. This is truly one of the best Langoas we have ever tasted. Quality is at an all-time high for this high-flying family estate. These are intentionally never the most showy wines from St Julien, but instead speak of great terroir and great winemaking. These are must-haves from this vintage and will give immense drinking pleasure in the years to come.
