    Château Léoville Barton

    At a very early stage, in 1638 a Monsieur Moytie, had started assembling little parcels of land on the hillock just south of Latour, across the stream that divides the parish of St.-Julien from Pauillac. He named his gravel ‘dune’ Mont-Moytié. A century later it was bought by a President of Parliament, Monsieur Léoville. At this stage it was possibly the largest vineyard in the Médoc. Today it is divided into three, and Léoville Barton is one of the trio, of these St.-Julien estates with the name Léoville (all of which are 2nd growths).

    I can

    Arians love freedom, and they will accept any challenge. The Aries will get impatient if its ideas do not work out immediately and as expected. Arians are unwilling to follow someone else's suggestions, especially if they do not make sense to them. They often have excess energy which can make them aggressive. Arians are brave leaders who express care and concern for all they lead. However, an Arian as a follower is rare, and can be troublesome. Because the Aries is open and honest, it will make energetic and generous friends. Arians have trouble compromising which can lead to problems in otherwise smooth friendships.Arians are extremely friendly and charming. They get bored very soon in their affairs because they also prefer intelligent and versatile partners. The opposite sex finds the Aries fascinating because of its beauty consciousness and adventurous nature.
