Château Léoville Barton was created as a result of the division of the Domaine de Léoville in 1826, when Hugh Barton, an Irishman who already owned Château Langoa in Saint Julien, bought part of the vineyard.

So it was that a new great Bordeaux property was born, alongside the two other plots that resulted from the sale, Léoville Las Cases and Léoville Poyferré.

Today, nearly two centuries later, the property still belongs to the Barton family, a relatively rare occurrence in Bordeaux, where châteaux have a habit of changing hands fairly regularly.

The fully mature 1987 exhibits a sweet, curranty, oaky, and vegetal nose, round, gentle flavours, low acidity, and a smooth finish.

It is an unqualified success for the vintage!

Tasting Notes

Deep plum colour with slight tawny rim, this Chateau Leoville has a lovely perfumed nose full of plums, iodine, raspberry and cinnamon.

A well-defined palate, not deep, but very smooth and silky, overall quite high-toned with a light black cherry finish.
