Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc
6 x 75cl * 12.5% ABV * Moulis-en-Medoc, Bordeaux
In August 2011, The Barton Sartorius family acquired this historical wine producing estate and its Château that was re-baptized Château Mauvesin Barton. With the Barton family's centuries of experience and unique expertise behind them, each of the four family members plays a specific role, perpetuating tradition and sharing their passion; Lilian Barton Sartorius takes on the management of the Château, Michel Sartorius takes care of the wine distribution, Mélanie Barton Sartorius becomes technical manager and Damien Barton Sartorius brings his expertise to the commercialisation of the wine.
The vineyard is situated in the "Moulis-en-Médoc" appellation, to the north of Bordeaux, on the left bank of the Gironde estuary. Part of the soil is clay-gravel, perfectly adapted for the development of Cabernet-Franc and Merlot. Another part is made up of fine gravel and gritty sand, allowing the Cabernet Sauvignon to reach full ripeness. As for all the Barton family activities, great importance is attached to environmental protection and the quality of the wines produced.
"Seriously deep colour, and plenty of perfume, heather, blackberry and crushed roses, this is really an impressive Mauvesin this is one that I think will surprise many people. More accessible than many because it keep freshness and juice running through it, but has the depth and concentration of the vintage. One to look out for. Eric Boissenot consultant, 33% new oak for ageing." 92 Points, Jane Anson, May 2023
"A polished and pretty wine with blackberries and cherries. Hints of hazelnut. Medium body. Fine tannins. Long finish." 92-93 Points, James Suckling, April 2023
"The 2022 Château Mauvesin Barton is terrific, with a ripe, medium-bodied, elegant profile as well as impressive cassis and currant-like fruit, some tobacco and graphite aromatics, fine tannins, and a great finish. It’s a brilliant Moulis in the making." 90-92 Points, Jeb Dunnuck, May 2023
