About the producer
Château Léoville-Barton is the smallest part of the Léoville estate, and has been owned by the Barton family since 1826. There is no physical Château at the property, and the wine is made at Langoa Barton.
The vineyards are in the west of the St Julien appellation, and are planted with 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc.
Since the mid 80s, Anthony Barton has been at the helm of the estate which has led to a dramatic increase in quality, with this 2ème Cru Classé now seen to be one of the most exciting in St Julien.
