Rated Excellent & 93 Points - Cameron Douglas MS,

"The classic blend of Bordeaux varieties showcase aromas and flavours of blackberry and dark plums, baked green bell-pepper and tobacco, some violet and cassis moments, marmite and a touch of leather. An abundance of fine tannins and fresh acid line lay the foundation for a core of fruit. Iron and pencil lead, violets and dark cherry. Balanced, well made and ready to drink from 2022 through 2028+."
88 Points & 4 Stars - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
"Beautifully styled and attractively expressed with dark fruit, subtle tobacco, leather, toasted almond and dried flower notes, it's finely textured on the palate displaying ripe fruit flavours, backed by chalky tannins, finishing lingering and sturdy. At its best: now to 2026."

Winery description
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. A typical “flacon bordelais” bottle – a short capsule – a long cork – and a sober label mentioning the name of the shipper and the appellation.
