  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

Has a nice thin, pale, straw color to hit. The nose is very peachy, with a little tangerine, and the palate doesn't disappoint for a $10 vouvray. Better value if you find on sale and personally i'll spend $5-6 more for a better vouvray but if you only want to spend $10 then why not?

Sit back, relax in the shade, and enjoy this outside in the Summer and spring.

I am a college student on a tight budget, but for around $11, this wine is one of my favorite buys. Goes wonderfully with many different types of cheeses and fruits, although I prefer it with soft cheeses and apricots. A wonderful, crisp, refreshing wine that I will continue to purchase! I will also note that I have tried other vouvrays within the $10-$20 price range, and this beat even some of the more expensive wines!

Faintly aromatic, this is off-dry Vouvray, its white currant and cranberry flavors lifted by some spicy pear. It is clean, with simple acidity boosting the sweetness and leaving an easy, fresh aftertaste. - R.V.

Tasting Notes:

Beautiful intense golden straw yellow. Intense and seductive, the nose reveals honeyed tropical fruit, apricot, peach and orange marmalade. White flowers appear when agitated. The palate offers a very good level of Botrytis. Perfectly well balanced, it is a full- bodied wine with a creamy texture, concentration and unctuosity. An outstanding vintage in Sauternes.
