Thomas Barton Réserve Médoc

Ripe black berry and black cherries…

Wine is clean, still very fresh and with an intense acidity. There is an interesting mixture of black and red fruits with predominance on the later such as, just ripe black berry and black cherries. Red fruits are showing as just ripe red plums and red cherries. A touch of purple flowers expressed by notes of violets, gives the wine a delicate lift. Roasted bell pepper aromas are present but are very subtle, those are mixed with a light aroma of new leather partnered with fresh tobacco leaves. Wine is primarily fruity, it is ready to drink now and has potential to age further for the next 5 to 10 years.
Structurally, the wine is dry, with a medium body, making it pleasant and approachable, the alcohol is also medium and well-balanced with tannins that are soft and ripe. After decanting and let seat for a few minutes the wine has evolved to slightly rounder aromas, fruit didn’t seem as sharp anymore and the overall wine became beautifully balanced.
In terms of food match, I would like to recommend Beef stew braised in red wine, beef stock and vegetables such as onions, carrots, garlic, mushrooms and bacon. Red meet and its protein will be calling for tannins and warmth of this beautiful young Médoc. ”
