  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

I really enjoyed this wine. Nicely spiced, deep berry fruits and well balanced. Good wine for the price and I would definitely take it to a dinner party. Beautiful with red meat and fowl.

Cherry color with violet highlights. Lovely perfumed bouquet with wonderful fruit (raspberry, blueberry) mixed with floral and spicy notes. Attractive on the palate, with smooth tannins and a slightly jammy note. The finish is long, perfumed and elegant. Pair with white meat, roasts and strong cheeses.

The B&G Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon shows a lovely ruby red colour, and an intense nose of plum and blackcurrant, with delicate toasty notes. The palate is silky and long with plenty of fruits and hints of vanilla.

The winemarkes work in partnership with almost 250 vinegrowers all over the greatest French wine growing regions and have chosen among this comunity 30 partners in the Langedoc, in Gascony and in Corsica to create new B&G varietals.
