This wine is concentration in both tannins and fruit and has the potential to be generous in character. Red fruits and blackberry flavors mingle with the dry, firm tannins.

Very ripe and fruit with lots of mature berry and plum character. Full body, round tannins and a savory finish. Juicy.

The 2015 Langoa Barton is fleshy, open-knit and absolutely delicious. Sweet red cherry and pomegranate are pushed forward, while hints of violet, lavender and spice add freshness and lift to the succulent finish. The gracious, feminine side of Saint-Julien comes through in spades. This is very nicely done. Tasted two times.

Very fresh, with a sleek frame around bright red currant and plum notes. Shows really good cut through the finish.
