  Barton & Guestier has a rich history, dating back to the 18th century. Thomas Barton founded his wine-shipping company in 1725, quickly rising to unparalleled levels of success. By 1747, he was considered Bordeaux’s best shipper, and he was the first shipper to have his own wine estates. In 1802, Hugh Barton, Thomas’ grandson, formed a partnership with Daniel Guestier, a French trader, to create Barton & Guestier, now the oldest wine merchant established in Bordeaux. While the company was established in Bordeaux, that’s not where the winemaking ends - it is present in numerous other regions in France, including Loire Valley, Burgundy, Beaujolais, Rhone Valley, Provence, Languedoc, Gascony, and Corsica. This diversity of production grants it a universal appeal, allowing distribution in 130 countries. Laurent Prada, the company’s head winemaker, works in partnership with about 150 winegrowers in France to produce consistent, high-quality wines sourced from all over France. Read less

Very good for the price. Off dry, nice minerality, crisp. Fairly simple, but good value

Very easy to drink, not too dry or too sweet

Words continue to fail to describe how infinitely drinkable this wine is. Retaining metallic and airy elements without overtly sharp or dry notes, this Vouvray moves equally well at fast and slow paces (i.e.: you can slam this mother down like Blue Ruin, but not, it should be said, because you have to). Currently only tried on its own, but my amateur opinion would hazard to guess that this vintage would - surprise! - be a delightful compliment to cheeses and warm breads.
