Chateau Langoa-Barton is a superb Third Cru Chateau from Saint-Julien. From the 2011 vintage, underated as it was over-shadowed by the two previous vintages it offers great value. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, this wine is starting to drink but will improve over many more years.
Dark, spicey blackcurrent fruit, clove, cocao and capsicum. Still young with plenty of time this wine is firm and structured with many years left in it.
