Tasting Notes and Scores
The 1995 Langoa-Barton has been perplexing to evaluate. It is woody, monolithic, and exceptionally tannic without the fruit and flesh necessary to provide equilibrium. There are some positive components - a saturated dark ruby/purple color, hints of ripe fruit, and pure, clean flavors - but the wine's angularity/austerity is troublesome. It will probably be a good, but old style claret that will never resolve all of its tannic bite. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2016.
Aromas of violet, blackberry and cherry. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long, rich finish. Pretty and rich and just coming around. This is excellent quality and value.--'95/'96 Bordeaux retrospective. James Suckling
