Third Growth Château Langoa-Barton is a model of a St Julien Bordeaux with typical restraint and elegance. The first of the two Bordeaux wine estates bought by Hugh Barton in the 1820s, it is one of the few chateaux that is still in the hands of the same family that was an owner at the time of the 1855 classification, a rare distinction it shares with its twin brother Leoville-Barton (the eagle-eyed among you may recognise Langoa-Barton above on Leoville's label) & the illustrious Mouton Rothschild.
Château Langoa Barton, a Bordeaux estate that stands as a testament to heritage, tradition, and outstanding craftsmanship. With roots stretching back through centuries, this domaine encapsulates the essence of winemaking in the heart of the region.
We’ve had the privilege of hosting owners Lilian & Damien Barton for an epic Wine Therapy Session, and these are favourite wines with the Honest Grapes team, as well as Club Members.
Melanie & Damien Barton are the current proprietors, bringing expertise and passion to uphold the estate's storied heritage. In addition to Langoa Barton, they also oversee the renowned Château Léoville Barton, forming a formidable duo of family-owned properties.
Third Growth Langoa Barton holds an intriguing distinction—it was the second Bordeaux property acquired by the Barton family, back in 1821. This estate proudly remains an original family possession within the classified growths, making it a captivating tidbit for any wine enthusiast's repertoire of dinner party anecdotes.
Once cast in the shadow of its second growth sibling Leoville-Barton, Langoa has embarked on its own distinct journey. A solid performer that occasionally unveils surprises, this domaine embodies the Barton family's unwavering commitment to value. Langoa Barton is not only a representation of proper claret, but it also carries a justifiable price tag that emphasises the Barton ethos.
