PRODUCER: Château Langoa-Barton, 3rd Classified Growth, was the first of the two Bordeaux wine estates bought by Hugh Barton in the 1820s, the other being Léoville-Barton, 2nd Classified Growth.
Hugh Barton was a descendant of an Irish family which settled in Bordeaux in the 18th century and which has a long and distinguished history in the region’s wine trade. Both properties are still family-owned and run and together represent the longest tradition of unchanged ownership in the Médoc. Anthony Barton is the current proprietor but is gradually passing the reins to his daughter Lillian.
Both Langoa and Léoville wines are models of typical St Julien restraint and elegance, and Anthony’s fair pricing policy, always with an eye to the long term , has won him many loyal friends amongst his customers. For years, Langoa Barton was considered slightly lighter and more forward than Léoville. However, in the last decade it has become noticeably deeper in colour and richer and more concentrated on the palate. Langoa Barton is now often the equal of Léoville.
WINEMAKING: Langoa Barton 2019 is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon 67%, Merlot 26%, Cabernet Franc 7%. Wine was aged18 months in oak barriques (60% new).
TASTING NOTES: The Château Langoa Barton 2019 reveals an expressive nose of fresh red fruit. It is a wine of great concentration. The tannins express an extraordinary finesse and delicatesse. The palate ends in a long finish, leaving behind an impression of freshness and good acidity.
