This wine has a fairly intense purple color. On the nose, it reveals a beautiful expression of the fruit with a dominance of blackberry aroma and a lightly toasted side. It is balanced with a fine body, a dense and suave substance. The supple and soft tannins make it as a gourmet wine.

Tasted blind. Full and round. More luscious than most. [23/01/2020]

Anticipated maturity: 2023-2028

Robert Parker 86

Lilian Barton told me that the Cabernet Sauvignon froze overnight in May, which means that there is just 28% in the 2016 Mauvesin Barton, alongside 47% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Franc and 7% Petit Verdot. Picked between 3 and 26 October, it has an attractive if comparatively simplistic cranberry, blackcurrant and cedar-scented bouquet. The palate is medium-bodied with light tannin, just a splash of soy on the entry, nicely balanced, although that absence of Cabernet means that it just lacks a little backbone and some complexity on the finish. As such, I feel it will be one of the earlier-drinking Moulis wines from the 2016 vintage. [Neal Martin, 28/09/2017]
