Review

The Château Marjosse is a historic property located 14 kilometers south of Saint-Émilion and built in 1782. It is surrounded by a magnificent property of 16 hectares of vineyards rooted to excellent clay and limestone soils. The renowned winemaker Pierre Lurton, born in a neighboring property, bought the property progressively from 1991 and since then has not stopped producing wines of increasing quality. Some of the vines are relatively young, but others date back to 1920.

The Château Marjosse red is a wine based on merlot grapes, accompanied by cabernet franc and, to a lesser extent, with cabernet sauvignon and malbec, the variety with the longest-lived strains. The average age of the strains is about twenty years and the soils, as in most of the property, are clay-calcareous. The planting density is 5,000 plants per hectare and the aging of the wine lasts for a year in French oak barrels, of which only 50% is new; the rest of the wine was aged in large old barrels.

It is a purple wine with a nose that initially remembers the tar, the forest floor and the aromas of wrought earth. Just a few minutes later, the elegant aromas of very ripe cherries, blueberries and blackberries appear with a touch of licorice, bay leaves and spices for baking. In the mouth it is fatty and velvety, of great freshness and with mature and flexible tannins drawing a firm spine. Its end of fruit compote and beautiful accents of red fruit reminiscent of raspberry cake, but also rosehip tea and wild sage.

Excelente

Complejo y elegante, cargado de matices según se va abriendo en la copa. Una combinación de uvas muy rara de encontrar en España, repetiremos seguro.

Suficiente

Recién abierta la botella resulta un vino agradable. Tiene una ligera sequedad final fruto de la variedad predominante, la cabernet sauvignon. Creo que las barricas las renuevan en tres tercios, algo habitual en toda Francia. Al día siguiente resulta un vino poco elegante. Elaboración mediocre para ser un Burdeos.

muy buena relacion calidad precio

Vino de Burdeos suave en la entrada y su sabor es persistente, muy correcto y no defrauda. Excelente relación calidad precio. Volvere a comprar.

Pequeño gran Bordeau

Color granate vivo. Sin aromas pero afrutado en el paso por boca y con un cálido postgusto. Equilibrado y bien integrado con la madera, que le da cuerpo y estructura suficientes. Muy buena cosecha 2015.
