"The 2010 Langoa-Barton has a very serious complex and involving bouquet with blackberry, cedar, sage and light sous-bois aromas that are exquisitely defined. The oak here is seamlessly integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with supple rounded tannins that frame its payload of black fruit laced with white pepper and cedar. It fans out brilliantly towards the finish. It is so velvety in texture that you could almost broach this now, but its substance and weight suggests that it deserves another few years in the cellar. Tasted blind at Farr Vintners 10-Year On Bordeaux horizontal. Drink 2024-2050." Antonio Galloni Vinous (Neal Martin) 95 points

"Tasted at the Union de Grand Cru in London. Although Anthony Barton's wine may become overshadowed by his brilliant Léoville, do not ignore that gem. The Langoa Barton has a supremely well-defined bouquet: classy, refined and perfectly pitched. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins and wonderful focus. Silky smooth in texture, harmonious with a pure and shimmering finish, this constitutes one of the finest Langoa-Barton wines in recent years." Robert Parker 94 points

"Softer than I expected given the highly extracted, exceptionally tannic wines routinely produced by proprietor Anthony Barton, the oaky, powerfully concentrated, dense 2010 Langoa Barton possesses silky, well-integrated tannins. Nevertheless, the level of wood and the primary nature of the black currant and black cherry fruit suggest 7-8 years of cellaring will be essential. This is a 30-year wine." Wine Advocate 93 points
