  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

Sweet and syrupy. Would actually be a good desert wine.

Wine Tasting NotesGold in color, with an intense and complex nose, dominated by fresh fruit (banana), dried fruit (orange peel), honey and toasty notes. Supple and suave, with nice freshness on the palate and intense mouth flavors (fresh fruit). Pair with foie gras, melon, roast chicken, blue cheese, desserts, or enjoy as an aperitif.



Tasting Notes:

Intense golden yellow. Fine and elegant nose of cooked fruits (apricot, orange), and acacia honey. Well balanced, this Sauternes has great concenrtation on the mid palate and a long and fruity finish.
