Cellar/Tasting Notes
The hisory of this highly acclaimed chateau began in Ireland! Thomas Barton left Ireland for France and settled in Bordeaux in 1725. Though he was prominent in the wine world, he did not buy any vineyards but his grandson rectified this when he purchased Chateau Langoa in 1821 and then acquired a part of the Leoville estate which will eventually become Leoville Barton. The estate is still managed by the Barton family today. Both Chateau Langoa and Leoville Barton share the same vinification methods as well as varietals but the difference is in the terroir. The Leoville Barton, produced with primary varietal of Cabernet Sauvignon, is classically long lived with balance and reserve.
Stephen Tanzer (ST): 90
"Medium ruby. Very pure aromas of black cherry and licorice, with faint nutty and herbal nuances; comes across as distinctly riper than the Langoa. Dense and chocolatey, with sound acids and underlying minerality giving the flavors impressive clarity. Richly oaky. Finishes long, with big, ripe tannins."
