Tasting Note:

It is hard to recall when the Barton family last missed the mark, in winemaking terms. Even the 1987’s, 1997’s and the tricky years of the early 1990’s are well-made, enjoyable wines, and the price is usually as pleasing as the wine itself. This wine showed a more fruit-driven aromatic profile than most of the other St Juliens we tasted, with big, round, red berry fruit on the nose, and a creamy, smoky dimension. On the palate it gives huge pleasure, fresh, with a silky texture, minerally and long, very fine, with good balanced length. For those of you who have had the pleasure to visit the Bartons at home, you may like to know that their eccentric dog that liked to intercept in mid-air wine destined for the crachoir has been succeeded by young Ceilidh, who has a thing for corks, and helps herself from the tasting table! A blend of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot and 10 Cabernet Franc, cropped at 40hl/ha.
