his wine is the ultimate homage to Thomas Barton who came to Bordeaux from Ireland in 1725. He quickly became the most important wine merchant in Bordeaux having built a solid reputation among faithful customers all over Europe, who recognized his expertise and know-how. The spirit of Thomas Barton has been perpetuated in this prestigious wine.
The packaging reflects the classic elegance of the 18 th century: a typical “flacon bordelais” bottle – a short capsule – a long cork – and a sober label mentionning the name of the shipper and the appellation.
Some wood aging gives this Merlot-dominated wine a full structure, with attractive tannins and juicy black fruits. It is ripe, full-bodied and very approachable now.
Appearance: Deep ruby with violet highlights.
Nose: Riche and complex nose of ripe cherry and redcurrant mixed with some minty and toasty
notes when agitated.
Palate: Harmonious, well balanced, with a velvety texture. An explosion of fruit with a long
aftertaste with vanilla and tobacco aromas.
