This property was bought by Hugh Barton from Ireland, in 1821. It has now been in the same family for longer than any other classed growth château in the Haut-Médoc. The current proprietors are Anthony Barton, his daughter Lilian Barton-Sartorius and her two children Mélanie and Damien. Langoa in 2015 has again produced one of the most harmoniously structured, richly fruity, elegant wines of Saint-Julien.
The wine is a blend of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc, presently ageing in 60% new barrels. The higher proportion than usual of Merlot is accounted for partly by the “great quality of the Merlots this year”, and partly by an extra plot whose production now merits inclusion in the Grand Vin. The wine is rich, ruby-purple, with luscious, freshly fruity aromas. First impression is of a rush of dense, well-rounded fruitiness, the middle-palate being finely sustained, the finish being elegantly charming and gently tannic, with lovely length (for drinking 2020-2035+).
