Chateau Langoa Barton 2011 vs Delaire Graff Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 2011

By , 25 September 2019

Yesterday the 2011 from Saint-Julien Third Growth Langoa Barton (picked up on sale from Ultra Liquors) next to the Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve of the same vintage from Stellenbosch property Delaire Graff. The former a blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc and the latter 95% Cabernet Sauvignon but including 3% Petit Verdot and 2% Malbec.

Both already drinking well but equally both possessing the inherent structure to last a good while yet, the Bordeaux all about elegance and refinement, the Stellenbosch wine showing much more fruit power.
