Histoire et anecdotes

In the 19th century, the Leoville estate, in Saint-Julien appellation (Medoc), was one of the largest crus. It was divided in three estates afterwards: Château Léoville Las Cases, Château Léoville Barton, Château Léoville Poyferré. Hugh Barton from Ireland bought a part of the Léoville estate in 1826, which confirmed the Château Léoville Barton’s creation (still the Barton family’s estate). Its wines’ finesse led it to be classified as Second Grand Cru in the 1855 classification.
