The Bartons of St.-Julien – Langoa and Léoville Barton – are widely regarded as two of Bordeaux’s finest and most fairly priced classified growths. They’ve been in the Barton family’s hands for more than 180 years, which is the longest period of single-family ownership in Bordeaux. Both Bartons are made at Langoa; in fact, the building pictured on the Léoville label is Château Langoa.
2020 Langoa Barton is made from 53.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot, and 8.5% Cabernet Franc. Langoa’s élevage is virtually identical to Léoville’s; Langoa is aged in 50% new oak, while Léoville gets 60% to tame its more tannic structure. Léoville and Langoa are made separately, with no inter-changing of lots or vineyard sources. Langoa is most emphatically not a second wine of Léoville Barton.
