2011 Mauvesin-Barton, Moulis
**Editors' Choice** This marks the first vintage of this Moulis estate under the ownership of the Barton family of Léoville Barton. Already the wine is showing breeding and an understated structure and richness. Lightly perfumed, full of black fruits and integrated tannins, it should age well. Drink from 2017.

Medium-deep ruby. Captivating nose combines red fruits, mocha and aromatic herbs. Light and lively on the palate, with good precision to the red fruit and mineral flavors. Finishes with lovely length and persistent mineral tang. This refined, nicely balanced midweight will be an extremely impressive debut for this new property, which is owned by Anthony Barton of Langoa and Leoville fame. It's uncanny the way this wine resembles its two more famous siblings.
*V This is a new property recently bought by Anthony and Lilian Barton of Léoville-Barton. They've done a great job with this wine. Very fruity on the nose. Elegant. Very good.
