Croix Barton is the expression of the savoir-faire shared by two great wine-making families, the Schÿlers and the Bartons, who are coming together under a single label. Batches are hand-selected on the estate with the greatest care and thoughtfully blended with due regard for the Bordeaux appellation. The wines radiate a distinctive French savoir-vivre, a traditional way of experiencing a fine Bordeaux to be enjoyed day after day.
Pyrenean gravel on a clay-limestone subsoil. Selection from harvests in the south of the Gironde department. Traditional vinification, in stainless steel vats with temperature control. Traditional vat ageing with regular racking to minimise oxygen contact, and progressive elimination of the lees. A final touch of oak completes the ageing process.
This wine displays a deep cherry-red colour with glints of crimson. The nose offers ripe berry and mineral notes. Supple on the palate with fruity and licorice flavoursleading to a soft finale of fine, rounded tannins.
Perfect with starters, light meat or red meat.
