  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

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.



Tasting Notes:

Beautiful deep red colour. The nose is intense, dominated by red fruits, with spices and some oaky notes. In the mouth, we have a round and supple wine with well-knit tannins.

All the wines have been selection by the winemaker fo Barton & Guestier and its winemakers team. 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.
