A stunning Bordeaux blend from Chateau Langoa, in the Saint-Julien AOC. 

The 2012 composition is 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc. This wine has a deep, dark garnet color with a rich ruby hue at its core. It offers a delightful blend of aromas: blackberry and raspberry, cedar, dominican tobacco, and subtle peppery notes. On the palate, it is bold and full-bodied, with bottle age contributing to the lush texture and smooth tannins that provide a satisfying mouthfeel. 

Château Langoa Barton is a prestigious winery situated in the Saint-Julien appellation within the Bordeaux wine region of France. The estate has a rich history dating back to the 18th century when it was established by the Barton family. Today, it is owned by the Barton family's descendants and continues to uphold its reputation for producing exceptional wines.

The vineyards of Château Langoa Barton span approximately 50 hectares  and are planted with classic Bordeaux grape varieties, predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc. The terroir of the estate, characterized by gravelly soils, contributes to the unique characteristics of its wines.

Château Langoa Barton produces primarily red wines, which are crafted using traditional winemaking techniques. The grapes are carefully handpicked and sorted before undergoing fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. The wines are then aged in oak barrels, typically a combination of new and seasoned barrels, to enhance complexity and structure.

Known for its consistency and elegance, the wines are renowned for their ability to age gracefully, gaining complexity and depth over time.

Château Langoa Barton is regarded as one of the leading estates in Saint-Julien, alongside its sister property, Château Léoville Barton. Both estates share a commitment to producing wines of exceptional quality that reflect the unique terroir of the Saint-Julien appellation.
