Chateau Langoa Barton 2002

90+ points

St Julien, Bordeaux, France. 12.5%

Classic very intense berry Cabernet, Pauillac style.  There is quite a bit of depth to this wine, it’s some way off from really hitting its stride – it doesn’t seem like a 6 year old.  Personally I like my claret a little more pretty than this, it’s strong and intense rather than fragrant and suave.  Needs time, another 3-6 years.
