L'Impression de Mauvesin Barton 2018
A new family adventure
1722 - Thomas Baron left his native Ireland to settle in Bordeaux, founding a wine merchant company.
1826 - His grandson, Hugh Barton, purchased 50 hectares of vines located in the Saint Julien appellation. In the historic 1855 classification the château was to be awarded the rank of "Second Classified Growth".
The property was managed by the various generations over the years until Anthony Barton raised Château Léoville Barton to the level of international recognition it enjoys today. The Barton story continues with his daughter, Lilian, and her two children, now writing the chapter of the 10th generation.
Terroir & vineyard
The vineyard is situated in the "Moulis-en-Médoc" appellation, to the north of Bordeaux, on the left bank of the Gironde estuary. Part of the soil is clay-gravel, perfectly adapted for the development of Cabernet-Franc and Merlot. Another part is made up of fine gravel and gritty sand, allowing the Cabernet Sauvignon to reach full ripeness.
As for all the Barton family activities, great importance is attached to environmental protection and the quality of the wines produced. The 55 hectares of vines comprise 54% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon and 11% Cabernet Franc.
"L'Impression de Mauvesin Barton" is the second wine of Chateau Mauvesin Barton. It comes from the young vines and the berries remained in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats for the fermentation and maceration phases, then the wine is aged in French oak barrels for 12 months. The barrels used are mainly those which already have received at least one wine.
21% Cabernet Franc
18% Cabernet Sauvignon
