1722 – Thomas Barton left his native Ireland to settle in Bordeaux, founding few years later a wine merchant company – that still bears the name Barton today. 1821 – His grandson, Hugh Barton, purchased Château Langoa, an elegant residence built in 1758. He was seduced by the architecture and its 20 hectares of vines planted in the Saint-Julien appellation. His passion and pride in his wine were only to grow when he saw Langoa awarded the rank of “Third Classified Growth” in the historic 1855 classification. 6 generations later, the Barton story continues with Anthony’s daughter, Lilian, and her two children, now writing the chapter of the 10th generation in Bordeaux.
Well balanced wine with nutty notes combined with soft silky flavours.
