Château Langoa Barton was purchased by the Irishman, Thomas Barton in the 1820's. The Barton Family had been associated with the Bordeaux wine business for over a century at that point. Hugh Barton had been a founder of the negociant "Barton & Guestier" in 1725. Thomas Barton also purchased the neighbouring "Second Growth" Château Leoville Barton later in the 1820's. Both Langoa Barton and Leoville Barton are still owned by the Barton family today.

Anthony Barton took over ownership and management of the properties from his uncle Ronald Barton in 1983. Under Anthony's oversight, both properties dramatically improved in quality from the position of average performers for their classification to being consistently, very highly rated. Anthony has recently passed ownership to the next generation (his daughter, Liliane) but he remains involved in both properties. Chateau Langoa Barton is the site of all winemaking for it's neighbouring sister property, Leoville Barton, since the latter chateau has no winemaking facilities.

A new chai (winemaking facility) was put in place by Anthony Barton in the mid-1980s. Unlike many facilities that were built in the 1970s and 1980s in Bordeaux, the traditional wood fermenting vats were retained rather than replaced by stainless steel vats. Elegance and finesse are the hallmarks of Langoa's wines. The Cabernet Sauvignon is dominant but not overbearing or overpowering
