Château Mauvesin Barton 2016 – Moulis-en-Médoc

Château Mauvesin Barton 2016 – Moulis-en-Médoc

The nose is aromatic and offers freshness as well as a good finesse of the grain. It reveals notes of ripe / fresh cassis and small notes of fresh blackberry combined with hints of ripe / fresh wild strawberries, violet, fine hints of Sichuan pepper as well as very discreet hints of sweet spices and a very discreet hint of nutmeg. The mouth is fresh, fruity, well-balanced, fine, beautifully racy and offers a good definition, suavity, a small straightness, a fine tension, juiciness, a good precision, a mineral frame (racy minerality) as well as gourmandise. On the palate this wine expresses notes of wild blackberry, fleshy/fresh wild cassis and small notes crushed wild red berries, fleshy wild strawberry associated with touches of licorice, chocolate, violet as well as discreet toasted hints. Tannins are fine and structuring.
