About This Wine...
200 YEARS IN THE HEART OF ST JULIEN
1722 – Thomas Barton left his native Ireland to settle in Bordeaux, founding few years later a wine merchant company – that still bears the name Barton today.
1821 – His grandson, Hugh Barton, purchased Château Langoa, an elegant residence built in 1758. He was seduced by the architecture and its 20 hectares of vines planted in the Saint-Julien appellation. His passion and pride in his wine were only to grow when he saw Langoa awarded the rank of “Third Classified Growth” in the historic 1855 classification. 6 generations later, the Barton story continues with Anthony’s daughter, Lilian, and her two children, now writing the chapter of the 10th generation in Bordeaux.
