Winemakers Note

The Barton Dynasty What makes the history of the Barton family so fascinating is how each generation has left its mark and added its stone to this exceptional heritage. In 1722, Thomas Barton left his native Ireland to settle in Bordeaux. He founded a wine trading company and, above all, a family, or rather a dynasty, which to this day remains the longest family continuity among the classified growths. In 1821, Hugh Barton, Thomas's grandson, bought Château Langoa, then in 1826, Château Léoville. Thanks to his talent and efficiency, the two Saint-Julien estates, renamed Léoville Barton and Langoa Barton, were respectively classified 2nd and 3rd Grand Cru Classé in 1855. The Barton family is today one of the only families in Bordeaux that still owns its properties since the 1855 classification. Many generations have succeeded one another, like guardians of the vineyards, but it is Anthony Barton, the gentleman of the Médoc, who has raised the reputation of Château Léoville-Barton to its current international level. Lilian Barton-Sartorius, the 9th generation, now manages the different properties. In 2011, she brought Château Mauvesin into the family fold, which was later renamed Château Mauvesin Barton. Today, Mélanie and Damien, 10th generation, are involved in the development of the different family wineries, thus perpetuating the legacy of Thomas Barton. Léoville Barton, the magic of Saint-Julien, the elegance of Barton The Barton family's passion for wine is reflected in the elegance and consistency of Château Léoville Barton, 2nd Grand Cru Classé in 1855. Its 50-hectare vineyard is located on one of the most beautiful gravelly slopes in the Garonne region, facing the Gironde River, in the heart of the Saint Julien appellation in the Médoc. This precious and unique heritage transcends one grape variety, the Cabernet-Sauvignon, and gives the wine a signature like no other. 2021 vintage Lilian Barton Sartorius tells you about this vintage https://bit.ly/LeovilleBarton2021
