This 2011 Bordeaux showed up this week at the shop. New to our shelves but with enough age to quaff tonight.
2011 Chateau Mauvesin Barton, Moulis en Medoc $34
46% Merlot, 36% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot
This classic Bordeaux is drinking great right now and hitting it’s prime. An intriguing nose of cedar, ripe dark berries, and a hint of mint. It evolves on the palate from bright cherry to slight earth, leather, and minerality to blueberry compote on the dry finish that follows. 13% alcohol by volume
