Tasted blind. Deep ruby purple colour. Exotic baking spices on the nose together with brambly fruit. This fleshy richness continues on the palate. There is some restraint offered by grippy tannins but the fruit and plush oak come together to offer a very generous style. Good power without excess. (TP)

The 2017 Langoa Barton is medium to deep garnet-purple colored and features wonderfully pure scents of crushed blackcurrants, wild blueberries and black raspberries plus wafts of underbrush, dark chocolate and violets. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is laden with seductive black and blue fruits, framed by grainy tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long and perfumed.
