New Release | Ch Langoa Barton 2017
Château Langoa Barton released this morning at £390 IB. Over the last few vintages they have made some stunning wines. Of the less heralded vintages 2014 was a particular success and the 2017 will be even better.
St Julien was one of our favourite communes at the recent Union des Grands Crus tastings and the 2017 Langoa Barton showed very well amongst its peers. Trying it again at the Château confirmed our positive first impression, as owner Lilian Barton Sartorius shared insights into the growing season. Happily, neither Langoa nor Léoville suffered losses in the vineyard from the late frost.
Langoa Barton encapsulates the classic qualities of St Julien: balance, consistency and great value. It perennially delivers a delicious style of claret which reaches its drinking window a little ahead of its sister château. In 2017 this is definitely a wine for the medium term, with lots of juicy Cabernet fruits, a solid core and full flavours: a serious and successful wine for the vintage.
