Wine Description:

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.

Tasting Note:

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.
