Château Mauvesin Barton Bordeaux

By Andrew Barrow In Photographs, Vineyard & Wine Travel, Visiting Bordeaux
The Bordeaux En Primeur assessment is underway. By all accounts the 2014 vintage ranks rather highly, with concerns only with the quantities available. En primeur isnt something I’ve ever been tempted by but all the En Primeur discussion and talk of Bordeaux brought back memories of a joyous trip to the region last July.

Only of my favourite visits was to Château Mauvesin Barton. We were privileged to visit – the winery visitor centre wasn’t finished – after a little tour and wine tasting I was basically given the run of the estate for an hour or so and managed to produce a handful of photos that I was please with. This shot of the Chateau from across the grounds is perhaps my favourite. I have print on my wall. You cant really make it out but those ripples in the large pond are some sort of beaver and her pup.

The photo is actually a six image panorama composite. Each photo was taken handheld (the tripod I had carelessly left in the mini-bus) and are all 10mm, f/13, 1/80sec at ISO 100 (for the photo-techie minded). I rather like it… as with other recent uploads copies can be purchased from the link below.
