Château Langoa Barton




St Julien

Grape Variety:

Cab Sauvignon Merlot

Château Langoa Barton, 3ème Cru Classé, St Julien, 2017

Tasting Note:

Langoa Barton has been closing the gap on Leoville over the last decade, but there appears to be a chasm again in 2017. Is this because Langoa Barton is less successful or is it just because the Leoville Barton is so spectacular? Anyway, we've established that there's a bit of a gulf. It feels like an early drinking, reasonably straightforward Langoa with notes of sweet cherry, damson and some earthy cassis. There is some good purity with nice cherry liqueur fruit on the palate, but it seems a touch dilute. It does seem to grow in the glass, so maybe this deserves the benefit of the doubt.
