The Chateau Mauvesin was created in 1457 but has seen a rennaissance under the ownership of Lilian Barton and Michel Sartorius since their purchase in 2011.
A well-rounded fine wine of elegance - fruity and fleshy with structure and richness. Lightly perfumed, it has subtle flavours of plum with a hint of blackberry and cherry and will age well
This excellent first vintage of the Barton family estate was awarded 91 points by Wine Enthusiast.
Merlot : 46%, Cabernet Sauvignon : 36%, Cabernet Franc : 16%, Petit Verdot : 2%
Rich nose yet with tension and minerals, savoury hints and aromas of peach pannacotta with herbal notes. The palate is rich with a creamy mouth feel, white stone fruit combines with minerals and fresh herbs. Dry finish with mineral acidity and powerful, persistent length.
The 2017 vintage has produced a delightfully fresh, well-balanced and smooth Bacchus. Calmer yet more complex on the nose than many vintages, our 2017 wine leads with herbal, tomato leaf and basil notes complimented by delightful tropical tones of papaya, mango and pineapple…with elderflower taking a less pronounced but vital supporting role. We delight in the way our Bacchus exposes so many new faces to us every year. As always, the palate is super-clean, refreshing and balanced….always leaving you wanting another sip!
