The Wine Spectator reports on some changes in Bordeaux. An excerpt:
The Barton family, owners of Bordeaux’s Châteaus Langoa Barton and Léoville Barton, have made their first acquisition since the 1820s. Anthony Barton and his daughter Lilian Barton Sartorius have purchased Château Mauvesin, an estate in Moulis en Médoc. The price was undisclosed.

“We’ve been looking for four or five years,” Barton Sartorius told Wine Spectator. “This château has been on the market for a while and the price was finally right.”

The estate has been owned by the same aristocratic family since the 15th century, with the château built in 1853 by the last Marquis de Mauvesin. The sellers are the current generation—Alain de Baritault du Carpia and his wife, Helene Capbern-Gasqueton. Helene also operates Châteaus Calon-Ségur, a St.-Estèphe third-growth, and Capbern-Gasqueton, a cru bourgeois.
