In 2003, Anthony Barton made his greatest wine ever from this second-growth in St.-Julien. Barton’s family purchased the estate in 1826; today, its 111 acres of vines consist of 72 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, plus Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The wines are fermented in temperature-controlled wooden vats and aged for 18 to 20 months in up to 60 percent new French oak.
