Although originally constructed as a real fort - the estate as a whole having been first acquired by Jean de Foix Grailly in 1457 - the Chateau as we know it today was commissioned in 1853 by the last Marquis of Mauvesin, Lodois Le Blanc de Mauvesin. Lilian Barton Sartorius acquired the property in 2011 and despite extensive renovation the unique essence of the Chateau has, however, remained totally unscathed. A direct descendant of the famous Thomas Barton, Lilian worked hand-in-hand with her father Anthony for 30 years, sharing the responsibilities of his wine merchant company as well as the family estates Chateau Leoville Barton and Chateau Langoa Barton.

The Moulis-en-Medoc appellation nestles between Margaux and Saint-Julien and is the oldest of all the AOCs in the Medoc. It sits a little off the famous 'chateaux road' and taking advantage of being slightly distanced in this way Moulis has developed its own identity and this personality can be found in the wines. The vineyard itself is beautifully balanced, partly clay-gravel which is perfectly adapted for the development of Cabernet Franc and Merlot with another part comprising fine gravel and gritty sand allowing Cabernet Sauvignon to reach full ripeness.

A classic claret - red fruits mingle with vanilla, sweet spice and woody, toasty notes. Overall a beautifully balanced wine, elegant yet structured with silky soft tannins.

Classically an entrecote with Bordelaise sauce or game terrine; it also pairs nicely with veal chops in a mushroom and white wine sauce as well as Saint-Marcellin and other softer cheeses.
