Capsicum/blueberry/mulberry fruit with a note of tobacco. The ripeness of the fruit is delivered by smooth tannins and rounded freshness. Expertly balanced red from Moulis, a Bordeaux Left Bank commune not far from Saint-Julien. In fact, Chateau Mauvesin Barton is the property of the same Barton Family who own Chateau Langoa Barton and Super Second Growth Leoville Barton. Melanie Barton Sartorius – daughter of Lilian Barton – is the winemaker (she is also an accomplished photographer).
