Since 1821, the Barton family has been writing the history of Château Langoa Barton in Bordeaux. Still the owners of this Grand Cru Classé in 1855, Saint Julien is where the roots and the heart of the Barton soul lie. The parcels that make up the terroir of Château Langoa Barton “look out” over the river.
The mild temperatures that result from this proximity mean that the grapes are often harvested early, which is a guarantee of quality. This magnificent quaternary gravel hillside brings each vintage to maturity, and then the grapes are ruthlessly selected for the production of Langoa Barton. At the time of the 1855 classification, Langoa Barton – distinguished as the 3rd Grand Cru Classé Saint-Julien – was already owned by the Barton family. Today, they share with only Mouton-Rotschild, the privilege of such a long family continuity.
