`This has a coal-smoke and dark-stone edge to the nose, which is classic, Moulis style with attractive cassis and brambleberries. The palate delivers a juicy and bold feel with redder fruit, as well as smoothly rendered tannins that hold in almost creamy mode. Try from 2022.’ – James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, 92/100

`The 2016 Mauvesin Barton has a perfumed bouquet of red cherries, crushed strawberry and hints of soy and warm gravel. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, supremely well-judged acidity and a detailed, elegant finish that lingers in the mouth. I must hold up my hands and admit that I underrated this out of barrel (mean old me), and happily upgrade my score.’ Neal Martin, Vinous.com, 91/100

`From the team of Léoville Barton, the 2016 Mauvesin Barton is mostly Merlot yet includes 28% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Cabernet Franc and 7% Petit Verdot. It’s a flowery, tobacco, leafy herbs, and spicy effort that has plenty of black cherry fruits, medium body, moderate tannins, and terrific balance. It’s a charming, elegant Moulis to drink over the coming decade or so.’ Jeb Dunnuck, 90/100

`Very neat and polished without being at all forced. Classic stuff — Barton Lite-ish. Very nice top-quality oak influence and a bone-dry finish. Lots of energy here.’ – Jancis Robinson, 16.5+/20

'Lilian Barton told me that the Cabernet Sauvignon froze overnight in May, which means that there is just 28% in the 2016 Mauvesin Barton, alongside 47% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Franc and 7% Petit Verdot. Picked between 3 and 26 October, it has an attractive if comparatively simplistic cranberry, blackcurrant and cedar-scented bouquet. The palate is medium-bodied with light tannin, just a splash of soy on the entry, nicely balanced, although that absence of Cabernet means that it just lacks a little backbone and some complexity on the finish. As such, I feel it will be one of the earlier-drinking Moulis wines from the 2016 vintage. Drink Date,2020 - 2030' – Neal Martin, Wine Advocate, 86-88/100
