About the Wine
Château Langoa Barton tells us the fascinating story of an Irish family who came to France in 1722 and started in the industry as wine merchants. Through a long time of effort and work, in 1745 they bought Château Le Boscq in St. Estèphe. And in that same year, they partnered with the Gustier family of Bordeaux, and together they founded the renewed brand to this day: Barton et Gustier.
It was in 1821 that the family acquired Pontet-Langlois, which eventually became: Château Langoa Barton. Shortly after, the family acquired the Château Leoville Barton but because that Château didn’t have a vat room, the wines were produced in Langoa Barton, however, the style of the wine is very different from each other.
Both estates are located on the Left Bank of Bordeaux, within the Médoc in the famous Saint Julien appellation, which is located between Margaux and Pauillac.
Château Langoa Barton is that it is one of the few estates in this region that has remained a family-owned property for two hundred years! Currently in charge of Anthony Barton and Lilian Barton.
The charming Château Langoa Barton is neighbor to Chateau Leoville Barton, Chateau Leoville Poyferre, Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou and Chateau Beychevelle. It has more than 44 acres of vineyard planted with the queen grapes of Bordeaux: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and a few Petit Verdot vines, the vines are of 32 years old, although they have a few since 1953, and a spectacular terroir (as to be expected in Bordeaux!) composed of gravel and clay soils. Eric Boissenot is the technical director, and with him as the oenological consultant, the wine is a guaranteed success!

Very pretty blackberry and blueberry character with blackcurrants and mint. It’s medium-to full-bodied with linear, tight tannins that are polished and fine ~93/94 JS
Not quite as generous as Léoville Barton, replaced with classicism and subdued tannins, as we see the impact of a slightly cooler terroir. Juicy finish, black fruits, plenty of life and lift through the palate. Enjoyable, but closed in with clove spice that is very clear on the finish. Tasted twice. A yield of 34hl/ha. Harvest September 14 to 28. ~92 Decanter
