The vineyards at Leoville Barton originally formed part of the great Leoville estate. Following the death of Marquis de la Cases, the vast property was split into three; the Marquis’ son Jean-Pierre took the third that is now Leoville Las Cases, the Marquis’ daughter, Jeanne’s share became what we know as Leoville Poyferre following her marriage to the Baron de Poyferre and the final third was auctioned off and purchased by Hugh Barton, who has recently purchased Langoa in 1821.

About This Wine...

Although not regarded as one of the great vintages, Robert Parker believes Léoville have produced one of the finest wines possible from this year.

“It exhibits a dark ruby color, a spicy, cedary, black-cherry and curranty-scented nose, rich, medium-bodied flavors with excellent ripeness, a sense of elegance, and a succulent, juicy personality. The wine reveals no signs of dilution, and the tannin is sweet rather than hard and astringent.”

Robert Parker
