Jean-Marc Barthez Bordeaux Rouge, Mary Taylor Wines


Honest, affordable Bordeaux

Jean Marc Barthez belongs to an “alternative” Bordeaux – one populated by the small independent estates that line the banks of the Garonne and the Dordogne rivers, where conscientious growers craft honest bottles for everyday enjoyment rather than 100 point scores. The archetypal “dirt-under-the-fingernails” winemaker, he serves as the president of a small co-operative winery in Monségur, an ancient village founded by Eleanor of Aquitaine in the 13th century. There, he oversees a handful of growers who cultivate small family vineyards – many certified organic – and join forces to produce Bordeaux wines that their friends and neighbours can actually afford.

This signature blend of 50% Merlot with equal parts Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, possesses much of the dark-fruited complexity that made Bordeaux famous in the first place – but rendered in a brighter, more refreshing frame.
