2017 Château Langoa-Barton, Cru Classé St-Julien

There's a superb fruit profile to this Langoa-Barton, juicy, cool and floral with a charming elegance. The tannins are ripe and well-formed and there's a nice mineral freshness on the long finish.

TASTING NOTES

This is very solid and tannic with a beautiful core of blueberries, blackcurrants and other blue fruits. Crushed stones, to boot. Full body and a flavorful finish. Serious for the vintage.
