At the age of 27, Thomas Barton left his native Ireland and the town of Curraghmore, County Fermanagh, in which he had grown up. He was educated by his uncles on his mother's side, Thomas and William Dickson, who were important figures in the merchant business and had already developed strong trade relationships with France. He was therefore sent to live in France in 1722, first in Montpellier and then in Marseille. A career as a wine merchant was not an obvious choice for him, yet when he arrived in Bordeaux in 1725, one of the major ports on the Atlantic coast, he developed an interest in wine and decided to create his first wine merchant company. He also began to build his own family, or rather dynasty, a dynasty which remains the longest-standing family legacy of all the 1855 Grands Crus Classés. Blend: 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc.
Ruby, purple color, the intense and complex nose reveals hints of black fruit, brioche bread. The attack is vivid and velvety.
The mid-palate enhanced the black fruit notes, unveiled firstly on the nose and some toasty notes. The wine is juicy and fleshy with elegant tannins. Final on the length.
