Wine Spectator, 91 Points
"A powerful nose, with sweet tobacco and sultana, follows through to a full body, featuring ultrafine tannins and a long, long finish, as well as lovely texture. This needs more time. Still tight and structured." - JS
In 1826 Hugh Barton, proprietor of Chateau Langoa, purchased part of the big Leoville estate which became known as Léoville Barton. Six generations of Bartons have since continued to preserve the quality of the wine, classified as a Second Growth in 1855.
In 1983 Anthony Barton, the present owner, was given the property by his uncle Ronald who had himself inherited it in 1929. Anthony Barton's daughter Lilian Barton Sartorius now helps her father in managing the estate. Together, they maintain the traditional methods of winemaking, producing a typical Saint-Julien wine of elegance and distinction.
