Tasting Note:

Gone are the days when Langoa had to play a very distant second fiddle to Leoville. Recent Southwold tastings have proved this is very much a match for its second growth partner. Harvested between the 3rd and 15th of October, the 2012 Langoa Barton will be shaped from 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc from yields of 32hl/ha. This has a heady bouquet of griotte liqueur; high-toned, floral and peachy, this is a very tight knit example with a good core of fruit and persistent flavours. Lovely balance and purity.
