"61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc. Raspberry, cedar and sweet spice aromas, lively and inviting. The palate is gratifyingly substantial, the quality of the dark berry fruit here really making itself felt, with a raspberry fruited brightness. The tannins are sensitively extracted but make themselves felt – very nicely judged. Tasted in a line-up of its peers, Langoa 2021 shone. 13% abv. 60% new oak. 39 hl/ha.
