2018 Château Langoa-Barton, Cru Classé St-Julien

In 2018 Langoa has punched above its weight. It’s grippy and fine, with plenty of intensity but also nice acidity, salinity, and crunchy fruit. The finish is very well-judged and mineral, intense with lovely length.

TASTING NOTES

I was really impressed with the 2018 Langoa Barton. Fresh, floral and silky, with tremendous fruit purity, the 2018 is delicate and understated to the core. Langoa is always one of the most gracious wines of Saint-Julien. The 2018 has an extra kick of textural resonance that makes it incredibly appealing and delicious. The 2018 is an especially fine Langoa Barton. Tasted two times.
