  • The second wine of Leoville Barton, this traditionally styled Bordeaux, has an expressive nose of forest berries with hints of cedar, coffee, and vanilla spice. Elegant and refined, with a long finish. The current owner, Anthony Barton, lives in the beautiful 18th-century Chateau Langoa and makes two wines, Chateau Leoville Barton and Chateau Langoa-Barton. Fermentation lasted approximately five days, and the must was pumped over twice daily. The wine was left on the skins for approximately two weeks, depending on the quality of the crop, to extract colour, flavour, and fine tannins. The wine was then drawn off, and the skins were pressed to obtain the pressed wine, which was an important component in the final blend. The malolactic conversion took place in the vats, rounding out the palate, after which the wine was aged in French oak barrels for 12 months before bottling.

Winery

"The history of Chateau Leoville Barton began in 1722 when Irishman Thomas Barton moved from Ireland to the Bordeaux region, where he established a successful trading company. His grandson bought Chateau Langoa and part of the Leoville estate in 1826. The current owner, Anthony Barton, lives in the beautiful 18th-century Chateau Langoa and makes two wines, Chateau Leoville Barton and Chateau Langoa-Barton. He now owns 51 hectares of vineyard at Chateau Leoville-Barton which lies close to the Gironde, sandwiched between the water and Chateau Talbot. They have a typical St. Julien terroir of gravelly soils over deep clay. Plantings are 74% Cabernet Sauvignon, with the remainder being 23% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc, reflecting the classic, Cabernet-dominated wine produced in the region. " 

The vines are trained using the Double Guyot method with high-density planting. The average age of the vines is 45 years, producing an average yield of 42 hectolitres per hectare. The soil is gravel of varying depths on top of a clay subsoil. Traditional ploughing and pruning occur; weed killers are not used, and fertilisers are used only in limited quantities.
