    November 15, 2021 - Another beautiful showing from this wine and vintage. So structured and integrated, exhibiting melted tannin, velvety textures, and a singed, earthy, almost feral complexity to the cassis and dark fruit flavor profile. This is as good as the last bottle I had in March and I anticipate it will remain for another five years, at least.

    September 27, 2021 - The 1998 Langoa Barton is one of my favorite vintages from this château, and arguably one of the years when Langoa actually outperforms Léoville. Offering up rich aromas of cassis and plummy fruit mingled with cigar ash and loamy soil, along with just a touch of grilled meats that dissipate in the decanter, it's medium to full-bodied, fleshy and enveloping, with ripe tannins and an ample core of fruit. Unusually seamless and complete, this is a compelling Langoa that demonstrates that there are terrific wines in 1998 in the Médoc, as well as in the Graves and on the right bank.

    August 20, 2021 - Firm, structured, strict and bright, with loads of crisp, crunchy red berries and nuances of forest leaf, herbs, tobacco, peppery spice and cigar box. This is quite classic and stoic in nature and will appeal to some tasters more than others.

    April 3, 2021 - Easter Saturday -the first bottle of 12.Overlooked as I should have started drinking them a couple of years back.
    Actually was surprisingly good and had a lasting ,well balanced finish.Tasted back to back with a Clos du Marquis 2000 which whilst more powerful initially did not have the finish or lasting appeal.

    March 1, 2021 - This wine has aged beautifully since last uncorking one back in 2013. The bouquet is filled with black raspberries, cassis, and chocolate atop sous bois, licorice, and tobacco. Mid to full bodied, nicely integrated, and elegantly structured, the flavors are wreathed in that singed, leathery vinosity that's so attractive in Bordeaux reds. Finishes long and beautiful.
