In August 2011, The Barton Sartorius family acquired this historical wine producing estate and its Château that was re-baptised Château Mauvesin Barton.
With the Barton family's centuries of experience and unique expertise behind them, each of the four family members plays a specific role, perpetuating tradition and sharing their passion. The vineyard is situated in the "Moulis-en-Médoc" appellation, to the north of Bordeaux.
2023 is 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 43% Merlot, 1% Cabernet Franc.

Inky ruby colour, another vintage that underlines how impressively Mauvesin Barton has been doing over the past few years. Delivers brambled blackberry fruit and balanced but clear toasted spices, austere on the finish, this heads towards closing in, but keeps the fruit on the savoury side, and you feel that the Barton family's experience means they can clearly identify what claret lovers expect from Moulis and zeroed in on it.

This is firm and chewy with a medium to full body, yet it shows succulent fruit underneath. Outstanding depth as well as a crunchy sense to this, with blackberry and graphite. Profound limestone character is giving this real depth and solidity.
93-94 James Suckling

The 2023 Mauvesin Barton has an attractive bouquet with black plum, cassis and light floral scents. This is nicely defined. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins and modest weight, but the oak is a little conspicuous toward the finish. It doesn't quite have the ambition or complexity of the 2022, though it represents a fine, perhaps earlier-drinking Moulis-en-Médoc.
89-91 Neal Martin.
