CHATEAU
Chateau Leoville Barton was born from the division of the Domaine de Léoville in 1826, when Hugh Barton, an Irishman who already owned Chateau Langoa in Saint-Julien, bought a portion of the vineyard. Thus, a new big name is born in Bordeaux, along with two other parcels from the sale, Leoville Las Cases and Léoville Poyferré. Today, nearly two centuries later, the estate still belongs to the family Barton, an uncommon situation in Bordeaux.
The current owner, Anthony Barton, had already moved from Ireland in 1951. He had a clear interest in wine and had already plenty of experience when he took the reins of the family properties. Anthony Barton has a noble aim - to maintain the high quality of both Langoa-Barton and Léoville-Barton, to continue to produce wines in a classic St Julien style.

Dense and concentrated on the nose, black fruit delivered in a very precise and well defined fashion, with a gritty suggestion of sweetness but nothing suggesting anything overly soft. Very nicely put together on the palate, elegant, fresh, very appealing in its composition. Good firm edges, vigour, fine substance and stoically firm tannins too. It is not at all unassailable though, plenty of flesh, but tightly honed and structured. Very impressive vigour.
