Tasting Notes

The 2021 Mauvesin Barton was picked from 30 September until 11 October and aged in one-third new oak. There is more Cabernet this year (52%) due to frost damage. It has a vibrant nose with black cherries, bilberry and perhaps more floral scents than I have encountered apropos previous vintages. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannins, not a deep or powerful Moulis, yet well-balanced and surfeit with freshness, a pleasant bitter swerve on the finish.

Score: 89 - 91

The 2021 Mauvesin Barton, the Barton family's Moulis, is a soft, fruity wine to drink now and over the next decade. Sweet red cherry fruit, cedar, pipe tobacco and incense give this mid-weight Moulis lovely aromatic presence.

Score: 88 - 90

The 2021 Château Mauvesin Barton is both darker and richer, with more black cherry fruits as well as medium-bodied richness and depth, good acidity, and supple tannins. It's a charming, balanced, enjoyable wine.

Score: 87 - 88
