The 20 hectares (49 acres) of Château Langoa Barton are planted in gravelly soils with a clay subsoil. The planting ratio is composed of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot and 9% Cabernet Franc, the traditional Médoc grape varieties. The vines are on average 37 years old.

Langoa Barton already belonged to the Barton family when it was awarded 3rd Classified Growth status in the 1855 classification. Along with the owners of Mouton-Rothschild, the Bartons are proud to be the longest-standing family of winemakers in Bordeaux. 

"The deep garnet-purple colored 2018 Langoa Barton is slightly shy at this nascent stage, revealing wonderfully pure, warm red and black currant scents with nuances of blueberry preserves, chocolate mint, smoked meat and a waft of bouquet garni. Full-bodied, rich and sporting a lot of vibrant, juicy fruit in the mouth, it has firm, rounded tannins and a lively backbone lifting the fruit to a good, long finish." 92-94/100, Lisa Perrotti Brown, Wine Advocate

"There’s real freshness to the crushed-raspberry and blueberry character of this young red. Medium-to full-bodied and zingy with energetic tannins. Crisp finish. Lovely purity of fruit to this." 93-94/100, James Suckling

"This wine has generous tannins that are matched by a blackberry flavor. It has the structure and concentration that will allow the wine to age." 93/100, Wine Enthusiast
