The 2016 Chateau Mauvesin Barton wine has turned out beautifully. Pliant and generous on the palate, the 2016 Mauvesin Barton wine is wonderfully racy, yet retains its classic mid-weight sense of structure. This 2016 Chateau Mauvesin Barton wine is sweet red cherry, plum, rose petal, spice and mint all flesh out in this succulent Moulis en Médoc. In 2016, the Cabernet Sauvignon was affected by frost, so there is more Merlot in the blend than is typically the case.
From the team of Léoville Barton, the 2016 Mauvesin Barton is mostly Merlot yet includes 28% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Cabernet Franc and 7% Petit Verdot.
