Neal Martin - Vinous

The 2018 Mauvesin Barton was vinified parcel by parcel and is spending 14 months in barrel, one-third new. It has a perfumed, floral bouquet of vivid red and black fruit infused with subtle scents of lavender and violets. With time, there are traces of orange pith. The medium-bodied palate displays supple tannin, a velvety-smooth texture and a slightly candied finish. Very fine.

Expert Review
Jeff Leve - The Wine Cellar Insider

Medium-bodied with a real juiciness to the red fruits. There is a fresh, crisp jolt of red pit fruits and spice in the finish. The wine was made from a blend of 54% Merlot, 39.5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6.5% Petit Vedot.

Expert Review
James Molesworth - Wine Spectator

Shows gentle charm, with a kirsch and tobacco core framed by light dust and balsam hints.

Winemakers Note

The Barton dynasty, a fascinating story What makes the history of the Barton family so fascinating is how each generation has left its mark and added its stone to this exceptional heritage. Settled in Bordeaux since 1722, the Barton family is one of the only families left in the Médoc that is still at the head of its properties since the 1855 classification. Lilian Barton-Sartorius, the worthy successor of her father, Anthony Barton, now manages the three estates: Château Léoville Barton (2nd Grand Cru Classé in Saint-Julien), Langoa Barton (3ème Grand Cru Classé in Saint-Julien) and Mauvesin Barton (Moulis en Médoc). Her children, Mélanie and Damien, representing the 10th generation, are involved in the development of the family properties, thus keeping this remarkable legacy alive. Château Mauvesin Barton, the passion of the Barton family Château Mauvesin Barton has a 47-hectare vineyard located in the Moulis-en-Médoc appellation. Its parcels, offering extraordinary diversity, each allow the grapes to reveal their most subtle aromas: A clay-limestone soil for the Merlot and then fine gravel for the Cabernet Sauvignon. In 2011, Lilian Barton-Sartorius brought Château Mauvesin Barton in to the family estate's portfolio. In 2013, Mélanie Barton Sartorius, the family's first winemaker, joined the adventure. With a solid background, she took over the technical direction shortly after and launched a replanting program of the vineyard. Today she produces elegant and balanced wines.
