  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

Wine Tasting NotesDeep garnet with purple highlights. Very stylish and elegant nose combining rich fresh red fruit aromas (raspberry) with notes of mint and vanilla. Consistent and full-flavored, with supple, rich and harmonious structure. This vintage can be enjoyed quite young, although it will also age well for many years. Pair it with grilled red meat and strong cheese.



Tasting Notes:

Ruby red colour with purple highlights. Seductive nose of ripe fruits (cherry, blueberry) mixed with flattering spicy and toasty notes when agitated. Fine and elegant with soft tannins on the palate. An explosion of jammy fruits. Long spicy finish.
