The wine estate
Château Léoville Barton, owned by Anthony Barton, is a 50-hectare wine estate. It is located in Saint-Julien-Beychevelle, in Gironde. It is classified as a second great growth in the 1855 Bordeaux wine classification. The production is 270 000 bottles. Château Léoville Barton is the smallest part of the large Léoville estate (after Las Cases and Poyferré) and has belonged to the Barton family since 1826. There is no château and the wine is made at Langoa Barton. Léoville Barton's 48 hectares of vines are located to the east of the St-Julien appellation and are planted on clay and gravel soils. The vineyard is planted with 74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc. The 2010 vintage is composed of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc.
The wine of Léoville Barton
The wine is aged in oak barrels (50% new) for 18 months. Since Anthony Barton took over from his uncle Ronald in the mid-1980s, quality has soared at Léoville Barton and the wine has reached a high level of excellence. It is tannic and austere in its youth, but over time it develops the classic cedar character characteristic of St. Julien, as well as the purest of blackcurrant and cassis fruit notes. Léoville Barton wines are designed for long cellaring and tend to be at their best after 10-15 years of bottle age.
