    I sometimes wonder if the Barton-Sartorius family, owners of Langoa-Barton and Leoville-Barton, acquired Chateau Mauvesin in Moulis in 2011 as much for the quality of its stables as for its vineyards. Daughter Mélanie Barton-Sartorius is an avid equestrian in addition to being a trained oenologist. Whatever the reason, they have certainly spared no expense in developing the property. The old cellars have been restored and new capacity added; the vineyards have been expanded and replanted. Today they have 50 hectares of vineyards planted 45% to Merlot, 36% to Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% to Cabernet Franc, and 2% to Petit Verdot. The 2016 Mauvesin Barton is quite true to the vintage, very pretty with bright red fruits and a hint of spice. Merlot takes the lead here so a bit more ripeness is evident in the rich, textured mid-palate. The finish is understandably firm though quite fine. An admirable effort, very reasonably priced, and a suggestion of even better things to come.

    Their best yet-I think so. So fresh and lively with a pronounced red fruit aroma. Quite sweet palate entry and some tannins at the back. Fine structure for the cellar, but tempting now.

    The folks at Leoville Barton are doing great things at this property. There is a hard candy brightness to the crisp red fruited entry in this surprisingly forward gem. The finish really tightens up with a firm tannic grip but overall there is more freshness than rusticity. By the time this is released it should have mellowed into a beauty.
