The Thomas Barton Medoc Privee has won many prizes such as the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles award for the 2010 vintage Gold and the 2005 vintage Gold. While the aromas speak of wood aging, the fruit comes through on the palate. It is firm, full and dry, and the fruity acidity and fresh blackcurrant flavour back up the structure. The Thomas Barton Medoc Privee is a fine wine that is rich and powerful with attractive hints of pepper, liquorice and chocolate. It is concentrated and well-structured with the wonderful polished tannin of cabernet sauvignon at its best. A fine example of Medoc wine with all the power of the vintage.
