Langoa Barton 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

"Barrel sample. Firmly tannic in character, this wine is dry and extracted. There’s potential for this powerful, impressive wine to bear the wine’s very dry character with the weight of its fruit...94-96" WE 4/13 "This well-made, complete St.-Julien possesses a dense purple color as well as surprisingly soft tannins for this wine which tends to be jacked up with a lot of structure, masculinity and muscle in most vintages. The 2012 offers attractive cedary, black currant fruit and vanilla notes, and a medium-bodied, denser mid-palate than many of its peers’...90-92" WA 4/13 "A wine with a very good depth of fruit with currants, hints of herbs and juicy fruit. Full body. A little loosely knit for LB but pretty all the same...91-92" JamesSuckling.com 04/13

Fine focus on the nose with a hint of nutty oak over mineral, smoke, and faint fruit aromas all come together with fine focus. Light on the palate, yet superbly transparent with very subtle hints of leather, herb, and gravel accenting fresh, crushed black currant fruit that doesn't dominate the palate. This is all nuance and finesse today with fine length and pinpoint tannins. 92pts
