Château Léoville Barton
Leoville-Barton is one of the five St. Julien Second Growth properties designated in the 1855 classification. It is often referred to as a super-second" though because its wines are at a quality level approaching that of a First Growth. The chateau is not only considered one of the top wines in St. Julien but also one of the best values. Leoville-Barton wines have a higher percentage of Cabernet-Sauvignon than other proprietors' blends a typical blend consisting of 70% Cabernet 20% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. Leoville-Barton produces a second label called La Reserve de Leoville-Barton. The Barton family owns both Chateau Langoa-Barton and Chateau Leoville-Barton having acquired them in the 1820s.
