The history of Langoa and Leoville Barton is the history of a family who have managed to preserve their inheritance for more than 2 centuries. From one generetion to another the wines produced by the two properties have maintained the quality of their classification, offering wines at the very top of their appellation.
Great Bordeaux, rich, fruits and sugards, complex, a hint of acidity and vegetables
Really enjoyed this wine! It enjoyed several hours of decanting, and revealed its lovely violet nose. Definitely a pleasure to sniff! Very refined wine - nice blackberry on the palate with a good minerality, but the tannins don't let you down either.
External Reviews for Château Léoville Barton Red Bordeaux Blend St. Julien
In 1826, Hugh Barton, already proprietor of Château Langoa, purchased part of the big Léoville estate. His part then became known as Léoville Barton. Six generations of Bartons have since followed, and continued to preserve the quality of the wine, classified a 2nd growth in 1855. Ronald Barton inherited the property in 1927. He in turn donated it to his nephew Anthony in 1983. Today the vineyards are jointly owned by Anthony Barton, his daughter Lilian Barton-Sartorius and her children Melanie and Damien, thus making eight generations of Barton family at Léoville Barton. Traditional methods of wine making are maintened to produce a typical Saint-Julien of elegance and distinction

Der Wein ist von dichtem, dunklen Rotbraun und lässt schon bei der ersten Kontaktaufnahme ein äusserst komplexes Bouquet erkennen. Der Geschmack geht von einer vollen, fleischigen, seidigen Ansprache zu einem tanninreichen, aber köstlich saftigem und sehr langen Abgang über. Ein grosser Klassiker mit schöner Terroirnote.
