Community Tasting Notes 12

    January 8, 2022 - The nose on the ‘18 Langoa Barton is understandably coquettish at the moment but offers glimpses of ripe raspberry, rhubarb, leather, and unsmoked cigar with pencil shavings on the palate. This exudes classic St. Julien character and captures the lushness of the vintage without succumbing to high alcohol (13.5%). I should imagine this will drink well starting at 8-10 years of age. 91-92

    November 25, 2021 - Creamy chocolate, sweet oak, earth, espresso, leathery and some dried flowers. Quite open for business. Medium body, refreshing. A bit lean given the vintage. Will be delicious in mid term once the tannin resolved.

    November 23, 2021 - Nice but super young. Tannic. Blackberry, cigar, smoke. Tested for bordeaux futures potential

    September 26, 2021 - Tasted twice, over several days. As per my go-to routine for sampling such young BDX, ~1/2 bottle was Coravin-decanted into a 16oz amber bottle ~4h before sampling on day 1. I followed up on it again ~24h later. Tasted alongside Gruaud Larose, Grand-Puy-Lacoste and Malescot St Exupery, this was my least favorite, and showed the most overt oak on the nose. Some of the oakiness subsided by day 2, revealing pretty floral aromas of violets and vanilla spice--which can also be a signature of too much new oak--as well as a bit of wet stone and cigar leaf. Red berry flavors dominate on the palate, with red currant, tart raspberry and sour cherry flavors. This may develop nicely, but the oak seems out of balance now, so judgment reserved. Of the two dozen or so '18 BDX I've tried, this had the lowest alcohol (13.5%), but also most unbalanced oak treatment.

    September 24, 2021 - Blackberry, cassis, strawberry, violets; precise, poised, gradual, enticing, moderately long finish with notes of nutmeg, cinnamon and gravel on the close; quite lovely and will develop well
