Provenance & Masters Behind the Bottle
A historic vineyard founded in 1821, Chateau Langoa Barton has been owned by the Barton family since its inception. Anthony Barton, a revered figure in the wine community, led the estate to international fame. His daughter, Lilian Barton-Sartorius, now helms the estate and has maintained its high standards.
Vineyard & Craftsmanship
Spanning 20 hectares, the vineyard flourishes on gravelly soils which endow the wines with remarkable structure. The varietal composition leans heavily towards Cabernet Sauvignon, accented by Merlot and Cabernet Franc, resulting in wines that are both robust and balanced. The scarcity of the production amplifies the estate's exclusivity.
Aging & Investment Value
Chateau Langoa Barton wines are known for their substantial aging potential, often reaching their peak 15 to 20 years post-vintage. This aging trajectory makes these wines a compelling investment, especially for those who appreciate the value of time in the maturation of a stellar Bordeaux.
