ABOUT THE WINE
The Barton family, the current owners of Chateau Langoa Barton are able to trace their Bordeaux roots all the way back to 1722, when they left Ireland to start a new life in Bordeaux. In 1821 they bought an estate in St. Julien, Pontet-Langlois, which they renamed Langoa Barton. The 25-hectare estate is marked out by its relatively cool terroir vineyards are spread throughout the centre of the appellation, all inland away from the Gironde. Highly traditional winemaking, with only 50% new oak, makes this estate less showy than many of its counterparts, but allows it to shine with bottle-age typical recommendation is 15 years from vintage.

TASTING NOTES
A lighter, fresher style for this estate as befits the challenges of the vintage. Quite accessible, with dark cherries, cranberry and delicate spice. The palate is medium-bodied with dusty tannin. Rewards time in the decanter.

FOOD PAIRING
Steak, beef burgers, rich stew.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
Out of all the 1855 Classified Growths, it is the only chateau that remains in the hands of the same family who owned it at the time of the classification.
