2016 Chateau Mauvesin Barton
The Moulis en Medoc appellation sits between Margaux and Saint Julien and has a long respected terroir, although slightly under the radar today. Chateau Mauvesin is one of the leading properties in the Moulis and traces its roots back to 1457. In 2011 it was purchased by Lillian Barton Sartorius to join the existing family Chateau of Leoville and Langoa Barton.
The 2016 vintage has lovely layers of silky, attractive fruit and plenty of tannin for ageing.
