About Could Château Leoville Barton be the most traditional classified growth in Bordeaux? It has been owned by the same family since its foundation just after 1821, so it is the epitomy of stability and family values. It is the only estate in the 1855 classification without a château or even wine making facilities so it is certainly not ostentatious and is probably a miracle that it produces such renowned wine. Leoville Barton has a very loyal clientele.
