THOMAS BARTON RÉSERVE
This range of wines is the ultimate homage to Thomas Barton, who came in Bordeaux from Ireland in 1725. He quickly became the most important wine merchant in Bordeaux. The spirit of Thomas Barton has been perpetuated in this unique and presitious range of carefully selected wines from the heart of the Bordeaux region's greatest appellations. These wines are the epitome of classic Bordeaux: rich, fruity and elegantly oaked, the modern equivalent of the great wines of the 18th century, those that Thomas Barton might have enjoyed and chosen himself.
