Situated in Moulis-en-Médoc, on the Left Bank of Bordeaux, Mauvesin Barton dates back to 1457, with the château being re-built in 1853. The exotically named Baritault de Carpia family owned it for several centuries, until the renowned Bartons, of Langoa and Léoville-Barton fame, bought the estate in 2011. As owners of these prestigious Saint-Julien properties, they set out to improve quality, renovating the vineyards and cellars with great results. Château Mauvesin Barton is a Merlot-dominant blend with Cabernet Sauvignon and a splash of Cabernet Franc. It’s vinified traditionally to capture maximum fruit purity, then aged for up to 15 months in French oak barrels (a third new) to lend spicy complexity. Still young, best decanted early.

"Polished and pretty wine with blackberries and cherries. Hints of hazelnut. Fine tannins. Long" James Suckling
