Irish trader Thomas Barton arrived in Bordeaux in 1725. He became an important figure in the wine trade during his lifetime but didn't buy any vineyards. His grandson, Hugh, purchased Château Langoa in Saint-Julien in 1821, and later acquired a part of the Léoville estate, which would become Ch. Léoville Barton.
Ch. Léoville Barton
Ch. Léoville Barton is a Second Growth Saint-Julien estate, one of the three famous Léoville estates (along with Léoville Poyferré and Léoville Las Cases). Owned by the Barton family (along with Ch. Langoa Barton), it produces classically structured Claret that ages beautifully.
