About the winery:
ChÃ¢teau Langoa-Barton, 3rd Classified Growth, was the first of the two Bordeaux wine estates bought by Hugh Barton in the 1820s, the other being LÃ©oville-Barton, 2nd Classified Growth. Langoa Barton has 20 hectares of vineyards (Cabernet Sauvignon 71%, Merlot 21%, Cabernet Franc 8%) lie on gravelly-clay soils. Both Langoa and LÃ©oville wines are models of typical St Julien restraint and elegance. For years, Langoa Barton was considered slightly lighter and more forward than LÃ©oville. However, in the last decade it has become noticeably deeper in colour and richer and more concentrated on the palate. Langoa Barton is now often the equal of LÃ©oville.
