Barrel Sample. Owned by the Barton family of Léoville Barton, this wine shows the elegance and ripe style of Moulis, gathered into a structure that is firm and dry. It has fine acidity, and is balanced, perfumed and bright. (RV)
Spices and berries with cedar and sandalwood. Medium-bodied, focused and very fine. Shows tension and focus. Drink now.
The 2015 Mauvesin Barton is a blend of 42% Merlot, 38% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot, the first vintage that Mélanie Barton-Sartorius was 'on her own' to make the wine. It has a straightforward raspberry and wild strawberry-scented bouquet, a little more tertiary in style than its peers, but with good definition. The palate is medium-bodied with light tannin, perhaps somewhat rustic in style compared to its peers, with a savory finish that needs to develop more persistence on the finish. This is a fine Moulis, although I think there is better to come. (NM)
The 2015 Mauvesin Barton is floral, perfumed and lifted, all of which make it absolutely delicious to drink now. Blue fruit, lavender, mint and spice nuances are layered into the wine's fabric. All the elements are very nicely balanced. (AG)
