MW Institute 2011 Bordeaux Tasting: Leaf, capsicum, cherry and berries. The palate shows style, the fruit is definitely red, with a tinge of green. Not sure that it has the structure for the long haul, but I definitely found interest tonight.

(Château Langoa-Barton (St Julien)) This wine has a dark and glossy hue, and there is a very perfumed, rich fruit character on the nose. This is smoky and intense, nevertheless it seems very correct and stylish. A big style, very firm on the palate, very fresh, very nicely poised, with generous tannins but they sit within the rich substance of the wine very well. It has a fresh, dark plum-skin character but it also feels lightly lifted, really delicious, dense and with a long finish. This has great potential. A wine that comes close to transcending the vintage.
