Langoa-Barton St.-Julien 2006
"This tastes more like a Pauillac than a St.-Julien with its big, beefy, tannic overlay and aromas and flavors of black currants, asphalt, leather, and damp earth. Tannic, full-bodied but almost impenetrably closed and broodingly backward, this is a long-term prospect for those with patience." Robert Parker

this wine was sampled over a several hour period while in the decanter. At first this wine seems elegant, and quite tight, as it opens it reveals a nose of smokey fruits and meats, tar, leather, spice, black cherries and great length. After the 6 hour mark this wine opened, became multi dimensional, and gained much body, was quite big, and had super length. I was stunned by this wine. Beautiful. Perhaps my favorite 2006 from bordeaux.

There's a great dark color to this, with intense aromas of cedar, wood, new leather and crushed blackberry. Full-bodied, with loads of fruit and a firm, powerful palate. Long and mouthpuckering.

Good bright ruby-red. Pretty aromas of black cherry, cassis, tobacco leaf, minerals, licorice and violet. Chewy, rich and deep, with good dense mid-palate fruit and excellent concentration.

Der Wein ist von dichtem, dunklen Rotbraun und lässt schon bei der ersten Kontaktaufnahme ein äusserst komplexes Bouquet erkennen. Der Geschmack geht von einer vollen, fleischigen, seidigen Ansprache zu einem tanninreichen, aber köstlich saftigem und sehr langen Abgang über. Ein grosser Klassiker mit schöner Terroirnote.
The nose is restrained but very intense and concentrated and of stunning class. The wine is very closed on the palate with remarkable texture and a core of fruit. Powerful tannins conceal the wine and hold it together. This will be long lived. Robert Parker 95. Tasted from barrel April '07.
