About Château Léoville Barton
Thomas Barton, an Irish man founded wine company in 1722.His grandson, Hugh Barton, purchased 50 hectares of vines located in the Saint Julien appellation in1826. In the historic 1855 classification the Château Léoville and Langoa Barton was to be awarded the rank of “Second Classified Growth” and “Third Classified Growth”.
The property was managed by the various generations over the years until Anthony Barton raised Château Léoville and Langoa Barton to the level of international recognition it enjoys today. The Barton story continues with his daughter, Lilian, and her two children, now writing the chapter of the 10th generation.
The vineyard nestles in the heart of the St Julien terroir among the most beautiful slopes of Garonne gravel, facing the Gironde river. The clayey gravel subsoil allows excellent growing conditions whatever weather the vintage brings. The plowing is traditional, without weeding or herbicide. The harvesting is done entirely by hand. Berries are carefully sorted and thermo-regulated.
