AOC WinesThomas Barton Réserve

Thomas Barton Réserve Graves Blanc

Bordeaux | Appellation Graves Contrôlée

This wine is the ultimate homage to Thomas Barton who came to Bordeaux from Ireland in 1725. He quickly became the most important wine merchant in Bordeaux having built a solid reputation among faithful customers all over Europe, who recognized his expertise and knowhow. The spirit of Thomas Barton has been perpetuated in this prestigious wine.
The packaging reflects the classic elegance of the 18th century: a typical “flacon bordelais” bottle – a short capsule – a long cork – and a sober label mentioning the name of the shipper and the appellation.

Grape varieties: Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon

Tasting notes: Sight: Bright straw yellow color with greenish hue and high viscosity.
Nose: Flattering nose with aromas of tropical fruits such as litchi and ripe pineapple. After swirling, the wine reveals sweet citrus notes like tangerine and kumquat.
Palate: Fresh and vibrant palate yet rich and opulent. Flavors of white blossom linger on the creamy finish

Guide Gilbert & Gaillard (France) June 2014
CLUB 90+ - NOTED 90/100 "Brilliant pale gold. Complex nose of yellow fruits, citrus and floral notes backed by gunflint and mellow oak. Very supple attachk leading into a velvety, mouth-coating palate showing impeccable balance and focused fruit. Elegant and very flavoursome!

Wine Enthusiast - R. Voss (USA) August 2012
Buying Guide : 87 Wood aging has produced a well- rounded wine. It has a citrus flavor to go with the more tropical fruit, a good zing of acidity and a crisp aftertaste. Drink now, or age over the next year.

Wine Enthusiast (USA) February 2009
Buying guide rating: 87"Closed and tight, this wine takes a while to reveal its ripe pear and apricot flavors. It is rich, but keeps its freshness very much to the fore. Lemon zest and tangerine fruits give acidity, which is rounded out by a spicy, lightly toasty aftertaste."

Irish Examiner - Blake Creedon (Ireland) September 2007
Bordeaux wines done up as a modern brand at this sort of price would have been unimaginable just a decade ago. This is a beautifully crisp fresh Sauvignon Semillon.
