Ruby robe developing toasted notes and ripe nose. On the palate, silky tannins and a good aromatic persistence.
Château Mauvesin Barton

Lilian Barton chose to acquire Chateau Mauvesin for the unique ambience one inevitably feels upon entering these grand premises: 500 years of wine-making tradition must have left its mark. However, Lilian’s family has their own close ties with the world of wine since 1725. The first representative of the Bartons in France (he arrived here from Ireland) was a wine merchant. The interest persisted among his descendants and his grandson achieved to become a property owner, having acquired Chateau Langoa in 1821 and some of Leoville vineyards in 1826, making the Bartons one of only three families, owning their estates since pre-1855 Classification times. 

It is not only tradition and experience that the Barons have been investing in Chateau Mauvesin Barton since its purchase in 2011. Lilian’s daughter has a degree in oenology and viticulture and contributes extensive knowledge and modern approach to the management. Latest technologies (optical sorting) are used on a par with sustainable farming methods (poughing instead of weed killing).

The chateau makes a second wine, and one more wine is produced from 9 hectares of land in Haut-Medoc.
