Chateau Langoa Barton

This property was purchased by Hugh Barton, a third generation Irish immigrant, in 1821, five years before he purchased Léoville-Barton. Both remain in the same family today, with Anthony Barton having taken control in 1983. As Léoville has no actual château, Anthony lives in the 18th Century Langoa property, where both wines are made side by side by the same team. Langoa, a third growth, consists of 17 hectares planted to 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot and 9% Cabernet Franc and whilst the wines are considerably cheaper than those of their illustrious stablemate, they frequently reach similar heights.
