Barton & Guestier Red Bordeaux Blend St. Émilion NV

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Pale straw and brilliant in color, this wine is pleasant and aromatic with intense floral notes (linden) and white fruit aromas (apple and pear). Initially, it is a round and soft sensation with nice freshness, intense mouth flavors, and a long fruity aftertaste.

  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

83/100 points. Rudy red in color to rose at the rim. Bouquet of sweet lemonade and blackberry with hints of leather. Fairly simple in taste with a body of black currant, plum and lemongrass. Slightly sour finish, possibly due to acidity. Very short ending. Decent wine at the price point, but probably won't buy again.

mediocre pinot. Smooth and easy to drink but lacking in complexity. Ripe berries on the nose and a tad tannic on the palate.

Pale straw colour with golden highlights. Intense bouquet with both floral and white fruits overtones. Flavourful wine on the palate with a long and toasty finish.

It is a tradition in France to meet at the local bistro to relax, socialize, drink wine and dine in a casual friendly setting. The Bistro varietals, consisting of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon, have all the right qualities of good bistro wines : simple, delicious, fun to drink, and excellent with lots of different foods and flavors!
